- For Experts
On the surface, the gig economy would appear to be a great leveler of gender wage inequity. The rideshare business is a perfect example of an environment with flexible work schedules and no overt gender discrimination. Yet a pay gap remains, as scholars Cody Cook, Rebecca Diamond and Paul Oyer, along with Uber and Lyft chief economists Jonathan V. Hall and John A. List, document in this rigorous study, which assesses the conditions that prevent women from achieving wage parity with men.
