Keefe, Jeffrey – Economic Policy Institute, 2018
In light of the Pennsylvania's most recent pension cuts and the challenges the state faces in attracting and retaining qualified teachers, this report asks two primary questions in this study: (1) How does teacher pay compare with the pay of other comparable workers in Pennsylvania--that is, are Pennsylvania public school teachers underpaid (which…

Canadian Association of University Teachers, 2011
There has been a long-standing concern amongst policymakers, economists, and trade unions over the persistent earnings gap between men and women in the Canadian labour market. Although this gap has narrowed over time, women's average hourly wages still remain about 16% lower than that earned by men. The reasons for this inequality in male and…

American Association of University Women, 2014
It's been said that men are paid more than women are paid over their lifetimes. But what does that mean? Are women paid less because they choose lower-paying jobs? Is it because more women work part time than men do? Or is it because women tend to be the primary caregivers for their children? AAUW's "The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay…

Roach, Bonnie L. – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2014
There is ample evidence that there still is a pay gap amongst men and women and the situation is no different if academia. Many studies have examined various types of gender discrimination in academia and two areas in particular are problematic--salaries and representation of female faculty in upper ranks of academia. This paper examines the past…

American Association of University Women, 2012
Fifty years after the passage of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, women continue to be paid less than men in nearly every occupation.

Corbett, Christianne; Hill, Catherine – American Association of University Women, 2012
Women are paid significantly less than men are in nearly every occupation. Because pay equity affects women and their families in all walks of life, it is not surprising that many women consider the issue important. For more than 130 years, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has advocated for gender equity in education and the…

Scully, Maura King – CURRENTS, 2011
Advancement is a women-dominated profession. The numbers say so: Approximately two-thirds of Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) members are women, and one-third are men. What does this mean for women and the advancement profession as a whole? As anyone who has ever analyzed statistics can tell, it depends. The numbers…

Dozier, Raine – Social Forces, 2010
During the 1980s and 1990s, industrial restructuring led to a marked increase in wage inequality. Women, however, were not as negatively affected by declining manufacturing employment because their pay was relatively low within the industry, and their already high representation in the service sector provided access to newly created opportunities.…

Jackson, Patricia – CURRENTS, 2011
The author did not expect to be surprised or disturbed by the data from the latest Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) salary survey; however, she was. CASE has been conducting the survey since 1982, so she assumed the findings would mirror her own salary history and those of her peers. While she suspected that older women…
