“The U.S. Gender Wage Gap: Patterns, Policy and the Pandemic’s Impact,” a March 10 eCornell Keynotes webinar, will feature two of the nation’s leading labor economists, an economics reporter for “The New York Times” and the ILR School’s dean.
In 2020, women full-time workers earned only 82 percent of what men earned. Why does the U.S. gender wage gap persist? What impact is it having, especially in these turbulent times, for the future of work, women and families? The panelists will address those questions by explaining what the labor market data is telling us and implications for policymaking.
