Women in the United States are not making large strides toward equal salary, but there is evidence of baby steps. Women don’t earn as much as men on average. For over ten years, women’s median income has been around 77% of their white male counterparts.
Lisa Maatz, the policy director at the American Association of University Women tells Forbes the statistics are “depressingly predictable.”
There is some progress to report, in the form of 16 states whose women workers earn 80 cents or more to every male dollar, twice the count of 2010.
