The overall wage gap of a company or population does not take into account whether men and women are in similar job roles. Only in similar job roles goes comparing salaries make sense since each job role can have a very different market value. Do we expect a brain surgeon to be paid the same as an hourly fast food worker? Of course not. It makes no sense to compare salaries of everyone together.
