It’s time to ask for more money.
According to a study released by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR), women don’t make 77 cents to every man’s dollar. We make 69.6 cents. The study controls for the fact that women have less time in paid work than men. Turns out – “Hour per hour, including only those women and men with the strongest [career] attachment who had earnings every single year, in this [15-year] study women still earn only 69.6 cents of each dollar earned per hour by men (see Table 1).”
