    Racial Differences in the Gender Wage Gap A new report from the Center for America Progress finds that White women earn 79 percent of what is earned by White men. But African American women earn only 62 cents to the dollar compared to the earnings of White men. Downloadable! Author(s): Carneiro, Pedro & Heckman, James J. & Masterov, Dimitriy V.. Abstract: We investigate the relative significance of differences in cognitive skills and discrimination in explaining racial/ethnic wage gaps. We show that cognitive test scores taken prior to entering the labor market are influenced by schooling.   Gender and racial/ethnic wage gaps show up when you look at weekly earnings for teenagers, too. And, they remain when you compare different groups of workers with the same amount of education.
