Wage Inequality Remains Between The Sexes

piggy-bank-wage-gap-inequalityA new report is a reminder that the wage gap between the sexes persists.  It says Arizona women earn 85-cents per hour for every dollar paid to men, a gap of about $6500 a year for a full-time worker.  

Sarah Crawford with the National Partnership for Women and Families says not much has changed since Equal Pay Day a year ago.

She says the wage gap is more pronounced for women of color, with Latina women making 55 cents for every dollar earned by a white man – and for African-American women, 64 cents.
