Physician Salary Pay Gap Comparisons

Physician Salary Pay Gap Follow-Up: https://medicalexecutivepost.com/2023/04/14/physician-salary-pay-gap/


Women earn as much as or more than their husbands in just under half of US opposite-sex marriages, a significant advancement for economic equality from past decades, according to a new Pew Research study.

  • Sixteen percent of wives in opposite-sex marriages are the sole or primary breadwinners in their home (“primary” meaning they make more than 60% of the household’s income). This share is triple the 5% of women breadwinners from 50 years ago.
  • In 29% of marriages, both spouses bring home about the same income.

But, according to MorningBrew, in marriages where both partners have the same income, women spend about four-and-a-half more hours per week on chores and care giving than men.

And when women become the house’s primary income earner, little really changes about how much time either partner spends on chores, Pew found. But in this scenario, men report almost five more hours of leisure time per week than men in egalitarian households
