NY Times pays women and minorities less survey says. Of course they would, they're leftists and thereby protected from the law
A bombshell new survey claims the New York Times is paying its minority employees 10 percent less than company average — while women earn 7 percent less than what men are paid.
The survey, conducted by the NewsGuild of New York, the union that represents about 1,100 employees at the Gray Lady, found that minorities are “vastly overrepresented in the lowest paid jobs at the NYT.”
“The highest-paid jobs are dominated by men,” the survey found. “In addition, women and people of color are more likely to hold low-paying jobs and are much less prevalent in high-paying positions,” the report, based on October pay data, revealed.
The report said that women make up about 37 percent of the reporters on the staff, but only about 16 percent of the critics, one of the highest-paying newsroom jobs.
Guild President Peter Szekely presented the findings to Times management on May 2 and had a follow-up meeting on May 5.
Times management claims the survey did not include factors such as education and previous experience, the Guild said.
“When that data is considered, it may be that the Guild will have to reconsider its numbers,” Terry Hayes, senior vice president for labor relations at the Times, told the Guild.
