Washington, Apr 10: American businesswoman, activist and writer Sheryl Sandberg has reportedly said that there is a real pay gap between what men and women earn.
Talking to HuffPost Live’s Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani during an interview aired recently, Sandberg vehemently disagreed with a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed that argued evidence of a “widespread” gender pay gap are “fundamentally misleading,” HuffPost reported.
Sandberg said that it’s indisputable that there’s a real pay gap, adding that people can argue about how big, but that’s almost besides the point.
Acknowledging common stats that showed that women made only 77 percent of what men earned, she stressed that the actual gap was still inarguably real.
She said that even if all of that was taken out of the equation, there still was a pay gap of about 91 cents to the dollar, adding that while thirty percent of the children in this country are being raised by single parents, the overwhelming majority of those are single mothers, the report added.
