About Us

It’s a big, expensive, global mystery. Why do women still make less money—a lot less—than men? In the US, the average woman makes 80 cents to every dollar a man makes. The Pay Check is an in-depth investigation into what that 20 percent difference looks like. In this miniseries we show you how the gender pay gap plays out in real life. We hear from Lilly Ledbetter, Mo’Nique, and a lot of other women who weren’t happy to be paid less. We find out what happens when a whole country tries to tackle the pay gap. And we see how some women are taking things into their own hands.

Introducing Foundering

Adam Neumann had a vision: to make his startup WeWork a wildly successful company that would change the world. He convinced thousands of other people -- customers, employees, investors -- that he could make that dream a reality. And for a while, he did. He was one of the most successful startup founders in the world. But then, in the span of just a few months, everything changed. Foundering is a new serialized podcast from the journalists at Bloomberg Technology. This season, we’ll tell you the story of WeWork, a company that captured the startup boom of the 2010s and also may be remembered as a spectacular bust that marked the end of an era. Catch the first two episodes of Foundering, available now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen.

Live From London: Equal Pay for Equal Play

The Pay Check is back with a bonus episode on gender equality in women’s soccer. A few months ago, the US women’s soccer team filed a pay discrimination lawsuit alleging that they do not get equal pay for equal work. The US women’s team is far more successful, by many metrics, than the men’s team, but they make half as much. Globally, the story is much more complicated. Rebecca Greenfield talks with Eben Novy Williams about the fight for equality in the US and then heads to Bloomberg’s UK Equality Summit for our first ever live taping to talk with English soccer legend Kelly Smith, head of the Women’s Super League Kelly Simmons and Lenah Ueltzen-Gabell about the fight for equal treatment in the UK.

Help Wanted

During World War II, the influx of women workers into the workforce solved one problem—the labor shortage—while creating another: Who would watch the kids? To address it, the U.S. government created high-quality, publicly-funded childcare centers for working moms. In this season’s final episode of The Pay Check, we explore the long term effects of this brief government experiment. We ask what it would take, short of a war, to generate a similar groundswell of public support for mothers in the workforce. And we question the assumption that mothers alone are responsible for creating the infrastructure that enables them to work.

The No-Child Policy

For the last few weeks, we’ve been talking about how having kids makes it hard for women to work for pay. But there’s a flip side to that: Because it’s so hard for women to work for pay when they have kids, more and more just aren’t having them. This is a problem all over the developed world, and since population growth is a big part of economic growth, these countries are desperately trying to boost fertility rates. China in particular is in deep trouble: after almost 40 years of the One-Child Policy, the population could start shrinking within a few years. We head to China to see how the country is attempting to get women to have kids — and why it’s not working.

Introducing: Business of Bees

These days about one in three bites of food you eat wouldn’t be possible without commercial bee pollination. And the economic value of insect pollination worldwide is estimated to be about $217 billion. But as important as bees have become for farming, there’s also increasing signs that bees are in trouble. In the decade-plus since the first cases of Colony Collapse Disorder were reported, bees are still dying in record numbers, and important questions remain unanswered. On this new miniseries, host Adam Allington and environment reporters David Schultz and Tiffany Stecker travel to all corners of the honeybee ecosystem from Washington, D.C., to the California almond fields, and orchards of the upper Midwest to find answers to these questions.

What About Dads?

When we talk about the gender pay gap, we’re talking about a ratio: how much women make compared to men. We’ve spent the last three weeks talking about what happens to women’s earnings when they become moms. This week, we look at the other side of the ratio: Men—or more generally, secondary caregivers. When men become dads, their earnings get a boost, a phenomenon known as the fatherhood bonus. But if they try to do more at home than established gender norms say they should, they too are penalized. Susan Berfield tells the story of Kevin Knussman, a police officer whose career suffered when he tried to take time off to care for his wife and new baby. Then we talk to Alexis Ohanian, aka Mr. Serena Williams, about how we can actually get men to be more involved dads.
