With 2013 being the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act, gender pay has been buzzing in social discussions.
In 2012, the gender pay gap increased, according to a Deseret News article. On average, women earn $163 less each week than men. This data — which says that women earn 77 cents compared to every dollar men make — comes from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2011 Current Population Survey.
But another article points out that critics don’t believe the gender pay gap is a serious issue. They suggest the methodology used by the Census Bureau isn’t accurate.
The most common jobs for women are secretaries, K-8 teachers and registered nurses, according to NerdWallet. See the most equal paying jobs and the gender pay history in this infographic from NerdWallet.
