What is the pay gap?

Recode is reporting that in 2015, the median salary for a tech writer in the US rose 1.4% from $74,500 to $77,000.

The average tech writer earned $77.65 an hour.

The median tech writer also made more money than the average white male worker, who made $72,000, according to a study from the Pew Research Center.

But the gap was larger for the white male than for women, the report found.

The pay gap was wider for women than for men in 2017, the data show.
