This news is just another move on Gap’s part toward pay transparency. Just last June, the retailer announced that it would  increase the minimum wage to a $9 hourly wage for its 65,000 employees and hopes to increase that to $10 by June 2015.

Although Gap seems to be moving in the right direction for fair pay, statistics show that much of the country is still far behind. Research from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research states that full-time working women in America earn approximately 82 percent of what their male counterparts make.
