The Glass Ceiling in Business?

December 13, 2008 | NeW Staff

A Carnegie Mellon University study has concluded that women executives out-earn their male counterparts.  The study asked the question, “Are There Glass Ceilings for Female Executives?”  The study controlled for many important variables, such as rank, experience, education and background.

There is much debate among women’s organization on the glass ceiling and equal pay.   For example, the National Committee on Pay Equity argues on its homepage that “women earned 77.8% of men’s wages in 2007.”   However, this number is criticized for not taking into consideration a lot of important variables, especially choice among women.  Dr. Warren Farrell, author of Why Men Earn More: The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap and What Women Can Do About It, summarizes many of the choices that men and women make.  I recently found his book, which I wanted to let you know about.
