Equal pay day: Exploring Michigan's wage gap

Equal pay day: Exploring Michigan's wage gap”

Companies in the same sector who filed Gender Pay Gap reports past year had an average pay gap of 29%**.

"As a technology-led business, our Gender Pay Gap reflects the broader societal challenges of getting more women into the technology sector", said Ticketmaster president Mark Yovich.

In creating a better future for the construction pay gap, there are various ways of bringing more balance to the work place, for example, lowering the 9-5- hour day expectations by altering the work shifts to make the working day more achievable for working mothers and fathers.

The median pay gap is calculated by comparing the difference in pay between the middle-ranking woman and middle-ranking man in the same companies.

Britain's women's minister said there was a need for a "cultural change" after publication of the data under a new government requirement for companies and charities with more than 250 employees to report their gender pay gap every year. "This is a genuine commitment to lasting change and we must welcome these efforts even if it does mean the numbers do initially go up instead of down".

"In common with many other businesses in the oil and gas sector, we also have fewer women working offshore or in other technical roles such as engineering or project management which attract higher levels of pay. Our independent adviser noted that we have much to be proud of as an inclusive employer, but we want to do more to address the gender pay gap issue". The mean hourly gender pay gap is -3.77% and the median hourly pay gap is -4.62%. It said: "We have updated our training for line managers, introducing training modules on unconscious bias to ensure our interview skills training is values-based".

The median gender pay gap remains the same as a year ago, with the median pay rate for female staff being 5.5 per cent higher than the median pay rate for male staff. Women's mean bonus pay is also 65% lower than men's (12% median).

Despite sex discrimination being outlawed in the 1970s, men in Britain earned on average 17.9 percent more than women previous year, according to government data. Additionally, a January 2019 report by The Zebra revealed that women pay more for auto insurance than men in more than half of the United States, including MI, where women paid 79 dollars more per year than men in 2018. Financial figures would never be given without any explanation for them, and gender pay gap reporting should be no different.
