12 reflections on the clergywomen's wage gap
from Hacking Christianity
A recent article drew out the wage gap between male clergy and female clergy in a variety of traditions, and the numbers are horrible: "New national data reveals that women clergy earn 76 cents for each dollar earned by male clergy. This is substantially worse than the national pay gap of 83 cents... In 2014, male clergy earned $1,007 per week; female clergy earned only $763. This is a $12,000 difference in annual earnings. The gap among clergy is noteworthy because, as an occupation, the clergy has credentialing (ordination) and educational requirements that should encourage similar pay for similar work."
