The Missing Middle refers to a particular group of employees in low and high pay quartiles, but not in the middle pay quartiles or middle management positions. It indicates that these employees are not progressing through the company. Research and data shows us that pay gaps between women increase exponentially past the age of thirty, due to care responsibilities, external pressures and progression through the company. As a result, companies often see unequal pay occurring in their middle management positions.
