Lower pay: Are race and gender still to blame?

  • Apr 11, 2013 · 11:45 AM
  • AEI



Description

With Equal Pay Day on April 9 and the Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin affirmative action case pending in the US Supreme Court, gender- and race-based discrimination continues to simmer in public discourse. The wage-gap debate, characterized by competing interpretations of the scope and causes of the gaps, raises important questions about federal employment discrimination policy.

Are wage gaps created by predatory employers, or do they reflect differences in work experience, in cognitive strengths, and in choice of occupations and work settings? What reforms should policymakers pursue to address the roots of these gaps? Join former Congressional Budget Office director June O’Neill for a discussion of these pertinent questions, addressed in her new book “The Declining Importance of Race and Gender in the Labor Market” (AEI Press, January 2013), which was co-authored by Dave O’Neill.
