Bloomberg has an article documenting a gender pay gap for MBA's, that shows up only after several years in the work force:
One explanation for the gender gap may be that women are less likely to be bosses. Women in our survey say they’re responsible for a median of three employees; men manage five. Twenty seven percent of women say they had no direct or indirect reports, vs. 20 percent of men.
Deloitte appears to be an outlier:
A company that bucks the trend is Deloitte, which is known for going to extra lengths to keep mothers in the workforce. For the 33 female MBAs at Deloitte who responded to our survey, the typical salary was $169,000—$4,000 more than the 65 men at the firm.
My question is whether the $4000 is a compensating differential, the compensation paid to women to keep them at Deloitte?
