In New York, on average, a woman working full time is paid $40,584 per year, while a man working full time is paid $49,174 per year. This creates a wage gap of $8,590 between full-time working men and women in the state.
For those that aren’t familiar, pay equity is the term that has
been coined for helping to ensure that women are paid the same
as their male counterparts for equal work.
