The price of gender inequality

Nov 09 2015 Published by under gender inequality, pay gap

I applaud any company that makes an effort to pay their male and female employees the same. Every company should do it, so it ought not be special. Out of my dreamworld and back in reality though, it is rare enough that it is special. Thus it is worthwhile and important to praise those companies that do.

However, this leading line made me cock my head and raise an eyebrow.

The price of gender equality: $3 million.”

What this sentence refers to is that the software company Salesforce reviewed all of its salaries adjusted the female employees’ salaries so that men and women are paid the same.

An alternate leading sentence:

“The price of gender inequality: $3 million”
