This Is The Impact Of Gender Wage Gap

It took 3 extra months, but women finally catch up to a man's income for last year

The two bottomed out on the list for the worst gender pay gaps, where women make $15,000 less on average than men.

"Women remain underrepresented at executive leadership levels at organizations of all sizes and across all industries-even, ironically, in the women's media space", said Samantha Skey, president at SheKnows, which was recently acquired by Penske Media, in a statement.

On Tuesday, the average woman's annual income finally "caught up" to what the typical white man earned by December 31.

"Equality in pay between men and women has been a problem in the United States for too long", Emanuel was quoted as saying in a press release.

There has been some improvement in the wage gap in the Louisiana. The gap is smallest in New York, California, and Florida, according to the report.

USA women who work full time, year-round are typically paid 80 cents for every dollar paid to males doing the same or similar work, according to the National Women's Law Center.

The majority (63%) of the time in the US, men are offered higher salaries than women for the same role at the same company, according to wage gap data and survey responses compiled by Hired.

Over the a year ago, the gender wage gap has narrowed by less than a percentage point, according to 2017 U.S. Census data.

Of course, Equal Pay Day is part of the narrative that women face rampant discrimination in the workplace and in turn, positions government action as the solution. The gap is now 68.3 percent, according to the task force.

Today is just the first of many equal pay days throughout the year, as motherhood and ethnicity compound the disparity. While white women earn 79 cents on the dollar compared to men, Black women earn 63 cents and Latina women earn 54 cents for every dollar paid to men. According to an analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics data for 121 occupations from 2017, financial adviser is the profession with the largest pay gap. This isn't a discussion about whether women should be paid equally or whether it is wrong for an employer to discriminate in pay against women.

Median wages of MS women who are mothers fall below the overall median, earning $0.71 on the dollar compared to fathers. If current trends continue, the wage gap won't close until 2067.

A breakdown of Mississippi's gender wage gap compares median wages of full-time working women to that of full-time working white, non-Hispanic men.

It can be true, Harris says, that sometimes women - especially primary caregivers - need to choose jobs that allow them to take a more active role in child care. Here in Bend, the Sparrow Bakery in Northwest Crossing offered $1 off coffee all day in honor of Equal Pay Day today.
