Does gender effect earnings?

I was recently doing a paper for my Industrial/ Organizational Psychology class and came across a study entitled, “Is the Gap More Than Gender? A Longitudinal Analysis of Gender, Gender Role Orientation, and Earnings.”  I found it to be very relevant to this class in the way that it talks about gender and how that correlates with earnings in the workplace.  It is quite lengthy but if anyone is interested take a look at it.  It talks about how different issues need to be looked at when comparing gender with earnings.  After running different tests and looking at the numbers it shows that men make higher earnings than women do.

  • Thank you for sharing this, Skye. The link you posted doesn’t work for some reason. Perhaps you linked to an article in a database, which would require a secure login. Can you post a citation for the article so other students can find it?

    Oops I thought that this link would work. Here is the reference to look up the article if anyone is interested. Another way to find it is type the title of the article in the search bar through the Purdue libraries database online.
