    Gender Pay Equity In Retail: A Long Way To Go

    In the 1990s, the Saturday Night Live “Gap Girls” skit — featuring comedians Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, and David Spade — became an instant pop-culture classic. Spoofing a day in the life of retail workers was right on target then and, unfortunately, remains all too much on point now two decades later. As was true then, women continue to be overrepresented in low-paying, front-line retail jobs and underrepresented in in-store and C-suite management. There have been some encouraging signs recently that the retail industry is moving ahead on gender pay equity, but there is still a long way for the sector to go.
