Workplace Salary Gap Persists Between Genders, Site Finds
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A new study reaffirms that a workplace salary gap persists between men and women.
The job site, Hired.com, says men received higher offers for the same positions seven out of ten times.
The study also found on average companies offered women three percent less than men for the same role.
In fact, Hired found that some companies' offers were as low as 30 percent less.
The study spanned technology, sales, and marketing jobs.
Facebook and Microsoft both released reports stating they pay women and men equally.
While Facebook's head of human resources says both men and women earn the same, Microsoft reported that its female employees make roughly 99.8 cents for every dollar their male counterparts make.
Tuesday, April 12th, marks Equal Pay Day.
