The Wage Gap Closed By A Whopping One Cent In 2015

Progress?

Rejoice: The wage gap closed by one whole cent this year!

According to the National Women's Law Center, the average (white) woman in America now makes 79 cents to a man's dollar, compared to 78 cents in 2014. It's a measly win, especially considering the fact that black and Hispanic women continue to make even less. Hopefully, we'll see some real change in wage inequality for all women in 2016.
