(Page 7 of 7)

Unfortunately, the salary numbers below show that the gender gap in pay levels that runs throughout the working world also exists in IT.

If there’s a silver lining, it’s that the salary inequality in IT is far less than that of other industries. Melland notes that recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor shows that, across all industries, men make about 19% more than women. In contrast, the numbers from the tech industry look less onerous.
