New York Times Pays Minorities and Women Less, Union Study Finds

New York Times Pays Minorities and Women Less, Union Study Finds

Thursday, 12 May 2016 03:55 PM

The New York Times pays unionized minority employees about 10 percent less on average and women earn 7 percent less than men in comparable roles, according to a study by the union at the company.

Women and minorities are more likely to hold low-paying jobs and are “much less prevalent in high-paying positions,” according to the News Guild, which published the study. The pay gap exists regardless of how long an employee has been on the job or the type of job, the union said.

Minority workers are “vastly over-represented in the lowest paid jobs,” including news assistants and help desk analysts, according to the study. Women and minorities are under-represented in newsroom roles like reporter or critic, it said. Women at the paper make up about 37 percent of the reporters and 16 percent of critics, which is one of the highest-paying jobs in the newsroom, the study found.

“The highest-paid jobs are dominated by men,” the study said. 

The study looked at the salaries of more than 1,100 workers represented by the News Guild and relied on pay data from October. It didn’t include employees who are part of management. It was conducted for the guild by the Communication Workers of America.

A spokeswoman for the newspaper said she couldn’t immediately comment.
