News host quits after discovering giant gender pay gap

News host quits after discovering giant gender pay gap

While Sadler attempted to negotiate with the network to extend her contract, she said, "not only did E! refuse to pay me as much as my male counterpart, but they didn't come close - nowhere close, not even remotely close".

Sadler's story is yet another example of how the gender wage gap persists in 2017; furthermore, the gap is not entirely the result of job choices and hours worked, as some economists suggest.

In 2011, for example, "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski revealed that Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC show's namesake, made 14 times her salary.

She described her thought process this way: "How can I operate with integrity and stay on at E if they're not willing to pay me the same as him?"

People reports that Catt Sadler has left E!

"That was really hard to swallow, but you know information is supposed to be power and when my team began negotiations knowing what we knew, that was the barometer in which I expected to be paid, based on the law and based on what I know to be fair. And well, I learned this first hand".

"Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale, and Bradley Cooper all fought and succeeded in negotiating powerful deals for themselves", Lawrence wrote in the article, referring to her American Hustle costars. She then turned talk to the current climate.

Sadler admitted that as the single mom of two boys, quitting was "scary", but vowed she will "find more work". "To keep working alongside some of the best writers, directors, and producers in the game", she says.

"The unknown can be terrifying, but it can also be the most handsome gift", Sadler wrote. Countless courageous women have come forward this year to speak their truth.

Sadler is hopeful about her future prospects and hopes with her exit, she can be an "agent for change".

In addition to her E!

A spokesperson for E!, which is owned by NBCUniversal, told People that the company "compensates employees fairly and appropriately based on their roles, regardless of gender" before thanking Sadler for her contributions to the network. Sadler used a similar phrase in her blog post on Tuesday night: "Know your worth". News and wish her all the best following her decision to leave the network.

E! did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Hernandez and whether she would fill in for Sadler temporarily or permanently.
