A new government report could spark more claims under the Equal Pay Act. It says that not only do women managers earn less than their male peers, but the wage gap actually grew during the boom years of 1995 to 2000, according to the study by the General Accounting Office, the independent watchdog of Congress.
Full-time female managers earned less than their male counterparts in 10 industries that employ 71 percent of all female workers. And in seven of the 10 fields, the pay difference widened during the late 1990s. Women earned 86 cents for every dollar men earned in 1995. In 2000, women earned 73 cents.
The report shows the salary gap is widest in these industries:
- Entertainment and recreation.
- Finance, insurance and real estate.
