It’s already shocking that women on average make only 77 cents for every dollar that men make. But on a state-by-state basis, that number could be better-or worse. For example, women in places like Vermont are making at least 83% of what men are (still not perfect, but better!). In contrast, women in states like Louisiana are making less than 70% of what men are making.
If you’re looking for a new job or planning a move, definitely consider how different states stack up so you can find a place that will help you best succeed.
