Some regard this Tuesday, April 4, as Equal Pay Day, or “how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.” And yet even though most women are convinced that other women are getting paid less than men for doing the same work, new polling data show that most women also believe their own employers treat men and women equally.
In other words, many women have come to believe the myth, touted by celebrities and politicians, that other women actually make 79 cents for every dollar a man makes for doing the same work. However, most don’t believe that it impacts them at their own jobs.
A Pew Research Center survey found that 62 percent of women believe that women “generally” get paid less than men for doing the same work. However, when asked about their own companies, far fewer — just 14 percent total — believe women are getting paid less than men where they work, and 17 percent say women have fewer opportunities for promotions where they work.
These are nearly 50-point shifts in perception from what women believe is generally happening in society at-large, and what they collectively report is happening based on their experiences in their own jobs.
