It's no secret that a gender-based pay disparity exists in America. Although estimates differ, many sources say that women tend to earn about 78 cents for every dollar that men earn doing the same work. But is this due to blatant sexism, or are there more systemic causes?
There is no easy answer to that question. But based on how widespread the problem is, it stands to reason that the problem must be systemic, at least in large part. The results of a recent study seem to support a theory of systemic bias.
