How much are you worth at work?



Recent research has shown that when organisations present themselves as explicitly meritocratic, individuals within the organisation are more likely to award pay rises to men over equally qualified women. 
 
In fact, when nearly 100 people were shown the same information about staff at a fictional workplace, they paid the men about $50 more and the women $50 less when they were told the workplace emphasised merit and performance-based pay.
