Apple closes U.S. pay gap

It seems like Apple has been busy doing more than just creating a new iPhone and MacBook.

According to MAKERSGlamour has reported that the tech innovator has “announced it has closed the gender wage gap among its U.S. employees — and pledges to close any remaining gaps worldwide as soon as possible.”

In its annual diversity report, Apple shares that they have “achieved pay equity in the United States for similar roles and performance. Women earn one dollar for every dollar male employees earn,” says Glamour, while also increasing their number of global female employees and minority employees, both jumping up 6 percent.

But, Glamour’s report points out that others also benefited from this push for equal pay, with “underrepresented minorities” also earning “one dollar for every dollar white employees earn.”

Apple follows several major companies who have opted for equal pay, says Glamour, including Facebook, Microsoft and even Amazon, who have all publicly shared their initiatives to close the pay gap.

All of their efforts are just one more small step to further securing equal pay for not only women, but also minorities in the United States and beyond.
