Workforce analytics company Visier recently put out a study that spells out the pay divide in America for women vs. their male counterparts.
The study found that the pay gap worsened for American women younger than 40 between 2015 and 2017. American women earned 79 cents for every $1 a man earned in 2017, compared with 81 cents in 2015.
Why is this trend continuing and will further attention to the matter stop the undervaluing of women when it comes to pay? “Employers are not making collective progress towards achieving gender pay equity,” the Visier said, in a report published on Equal Pay Day.
How did Visier come to their conclusion? Using anonymized company data for the last three years to examine pay and performance for more than 1.5 million American workers across 60 companies in a wide range of industries.
