Women, Minorities Paid Least In Newsrooms

A new report says that some of the biggest newsrooms in the country are paying women and minority staffers significantly less than their male and white counterparts. The report, titled “Mind the gap: Uncovering pay disparity in the newsroom” and conducted by student reporters in the Asian American Journalists Association’s Voices program, analyzed seven pay-equity studies from newsrooms both with and without union representation to examine how reporters tasked with covering pay disparities in other industries are also contending with major divergences in their own.
