Women shortchanged

September 21, 2012

New data reveal that South Carolina women are paid less than men in every part of the state. The National Partnership for Women and Families says the Census Bureau data released yesterday make for an unprecedented analysis showing that the gender-based wage gap affects women in every corner of the state. It’s the first time that the data breakdown what women make, as compared to men, in each of the state’s congressional districts. Oconee women and women across the Third District are paid 76 cents for every dollar paid to men. For one year alone, it amounts to a loss of $9, 961. According to the National Partnership for Women and Families, the median pay for a South Carolina woman working full time, year-round is $31,330, while the median yearly pay for a man is $41,464.
