New numbers show the city is still struggling to hire a diverse workforce and female city employees make less than men.
“I have two daughters in the workforce, and it is concerning, and that’s why we have to hold ourselves responsible and hold city management accountable for making sure that those things happen,” said Sacramento City Councilman Larry Carr.
So how big is Sacramento’s gender gap?
Women make up just over half of the overall city population, but only 30-percent of the city’s full-time employees. On average, female employees make $12,000 less per year compared to men, a 16 percent gap
“There’s room for improvement,” said City Councilwoman Angelique Ashby.
