Pay transparency laws shrink the Gender Gap by reducing male wages

The Economist reports:
...[Pay Transparency law] shrank the gender pay gap by 13%, but only because it curbed the wages of male employees. Studies of Britain’s gender-pay-gap law, which was implemented in 2018, have reached similar conclusions.
Of course, the term "gender-pay-gap" refers to a statistical difference betweden what men and women are paid. It does not mean that men are paid more for the same work as women. See earlier post When are between group differences evidence of discrimination?
