Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie earn $18 million less than Matt Lauer for the same job

A recent study conducted by the National Women’s Law Center found that mothers are paid 71 cents for each dollar earned by fathers, even when the occupation is accounted. Emily Martin, NWLC vice president for workplace justice, told the Chicago Tribune in April, “But if you look at, for example, retail sales supervisors, that’s a place where there are a lot of moms employed and there are a lot of dads employed: Dads typically make about $24 an hour in that occupation, while moms typically make $15 an hour. So there are huge gaps, even when you correct for occupation.”
