On this week’s episode of Pocket Dilemmas we speak to Kitt Carpenter Professor of Economics at Vanderbilt University, and Cevat Aksoy, one of our economists, on the LGBTQI pay gap and were surprised by some of the findings from the research.

For example, on average gay men in the United States earn 11 percent less than heterosexual men, while lesbians earn 9 percent more than heterosexual women.

As usual, the hosts of the Pocket Dilemmas podcast are Jonathan Charles and Kerrie Law.
