Pay Equity Information

What’s the Wage Gap Where You Live?

In Pennsylvania, the median pay for a woman working full time, year round is $37,089 per year, while the median yearly pay for a man is $47,956. This means that women are paid 77 cents for every dollar paid to men, amounting to a yearly gap of $10,867 between full-time working men and women in the state.1

Nationally, women working full time, year round are paid just 77 cents for every dollar paid to all men. Women of color experience even greater disparities. African American women are paid 64 cents and Latinas are paid just 55 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men.
