African-Americans are more likely to get hired, but get paid less in tech industry – They Ask For Less

African-Americans are more likely to get hired, but get paid less in tech industry

Maybe they get hired more often because they ask for less. $113,000 is very good money and $10,000 less may be due to other factors, such as experience, skill set and GPA.

“African-American tech workers — software engineers, in particular — woefully fall behind. According to the report, that’s because they ask for and receive significantly lower salaries: $113,000 and $115,000, respectively, versus their white counterparts who ask for and receive salaries $10,000 more on average.”
