Fact Sheet on the Earnings Gap.
Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
A comparison of median income since 1955 shows that the salary differential between men and women has increased in recent years. Although this is due primarily to the over-representation of women in low-skilled, low-paying jobs, even within the same occupations men are better paid. Salary comparisons for professional occupations show differentials by sex. (BH)
