Report Finds Wage Gap, Other Inequities of Women in Kansas

Associated Press - March 14, 2016 12:36 pm

A recent report has determined that women in Kansas who work full-time, year-round earn 79 cents for every dollar made by men.

The Topeka Capital Journal reports that the University of Kansas’ Center for Science and Technology & Economic Policy was commissioned by the Women’s Foundation to analyze factors such as economic well-being, health and civic engagement of women across the state.

The report, titled “Status of Women in Kansas,” found that the median earnings of women who work full-time, year-round is about $35,560 annually. Johnson County has the highest median earnings for women, while Gove County has the lowest.

Women account for more than 49 percent of the employed individuals in Kansas.
