Men Still Earn More Than Women In WA

The U.S. Bureay of Labor Statistics reports there is still a sizeable gap between what men earn and what women earn. The agency says that in 2016 Washington women who were full-time wage and salary workers had median usual weekly earnings of $814 or 77.1 percent of the $1,056 median usual weekly earnings of their male counterparts. That number was little changed from 2015. Nationwide, women earned $749 per week or 81.9 percent of the $915 median for men.
