The pay gap, in common with other banks, reflects average hourly pay and is the result of fewer women being in higher-paying senior roles rather than unequal pay for women and men at the same rank, the U.S. bank said. A spokesman for JP Morgan confirmed the memo’s contents. Reporting by Lawrence White; Editing by Alexander SmithOur Standards:The Thomson Trust Principles.
