Meanwhile, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has issued a statement to Congress’s Joint Economic Committee, outlining women’s representation in management ranks and comparing the compensation paid to men and women. “...[F]emale managers earned 81 cents for every dollar earned by male managers in 2007, compared to 79 cents in 2000,” stated Andrew Sherrill, the GAO’s director of Education, Workforce, and Income Security. “The estimated adjusted pay difference varied by industry sector, with female managers’ earnings ranging from 78 cents to 87 cents for every dollar earned by male managers in 2007, depending on the industry sector.”
