New GAO report on representation, pay disparities marks Equal Pay Day


To mark Equal Pay Day, the chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, Carolyn Maloney, released a new Government Accountability Office analysis of women’s representation in management positions across industries and the status of the pay gap between men and women managers. The analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data showed that in 2019 women made up 48% of the overall workforce, while management positions were made up of 42% women, up 2 percentage points from 2007. It also found a pay gap still exists between female and male managers. For every dollar the average male manager is paid, the average female manager is paid 71 cents, resulting in an average difference in annual pay of $34,977. By those figures, an Asian-American female manager makes about $21,582 less than a white male manager, a Black female manager makes $54,841 less and a Latina female manager makes about $59,069 less. Six Iowa leaders shared their thoughts on pay inequity in the state in this 2021 Fearless article.
