Salary gap between male and female s narrowing in the United States but it seems that the situation in New Jersey is not that optimistic as most of the New Jersey women earn less than 80% then men, shown in U.S. Census data.
The report from the Pew Research Center found that women age 16 and above earned about $0.80 while men earned $1, or the hourly paid for women is $14.90 while hourly paid for men is $17.79. The salary gap among the ages from 25-34 is narrower.
Highlight from the report:
- 21 municipalities in New Jersey where women earned less than half than men.
- In some of the state’s wealthiest communities, e.g. Mantoloking, where women earned just 24% of the median man’s salary.
- Women earned just about 1/3 of what men earned in Sea Girt, Saddle River and Teterboro.
- Pay gap tends to be most narrow in urban areas close to New York City.
