Are you a victim of gender discrimination at work?

Did you recently discover that you are paid at a lower rate for the same work than your coworker of the opposite gender? Unfortunately, this happens a lot.

According to a survey by the Pew Research Center, the U.S. has a long way to go toward gender equality. While a majority of people believe there is a discrepancy between how much men and women make, many believe it is justified because of the differences between men and women. Attitudes on gender suggest that physical ability, hobbies and interests and the expression of emotions all play a role in the workplace.

Are wages really different for similarly-situated men and women?

Many don't believe that the wage gap really exists, but the truth shows that it does. Evidence supports that there is a significant gap between the pay rates of men and women performing the same jobs. The Institute for Women's Policy and Research found that:

  • Across all races, women working full-time jobs in the U.S. earned about $.80 for each dollar earned by men.
  • Black women tend to make an average $.63 per dollar for every dollar that a man makes.
  • Latinas make little more than half of each dollar that their male counterparts earn.

Despite the factual evidence, only 61 percent of men surveyed believe that men are paid more when they perform the same tasks as women. This is compared to 83 percent of women who believe that there is a true wage gap in America.

The wage gap is real, and it costs each woman $10,000 per year on average. If you believe -- or know -- that you are being paid less for the same work as a male colleague, you have options. Learn how to take legal action, and start earning your fair share.
