Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Women working for Mayor de Blasio earn at least 4.5% less than men on average, pay gap increases to 10% for top officials”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Bill de Blasio has more women working for him than men — but they still get paid less than their male colleagues.
Women at the highest levels of the administration made $227,509 on average, which is 10.2% less than the $253,235 average for men, according to a Daily News analysis of salaries for 69 commissioners, agency heads and directors. Of those top officials, 38 are women.
But City Hall’s gender pay gap goes beyond the prominent women commissioners and agency heads across the de Blasio administration — impacting hundreds of other top officials, aides and lower-level staffers working directly for the mayor’s office as opposed to other agencies.
Women working full-time for the mayor’s office had an average base salary of $104,204 in fiscal year 2019, which is 4.5% less than the average pay for men of $109,142, The News analysis of payroll records found.
“Compounded over the years of employment at City Hall, it’s a significant loss of income for those women,” said Sonia Ossorio, president of the National Organization for Women New York City and New York State. “When you consider that many women experience a pay gap at many points throughout their career, the loss is staggering and impacts families’ standard of living and women’s quality of life in retirement.”
