The Wage Gap is Real — but it’s not as bad in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic

Thanks to my husband for sharing this interesting article from the Washington Post.

According to a recent study by the nonprofit Institute for Women’s Policy Research, American women have the best Employment & Earnings grades in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic and–in general–the worst in the South. This is good news for those of us living in the DC area (D.C. ranked #1, Maryland ranked #2, and Virginia ranked #8), but not so great for my friends in Louisiana (#49),  Idaho (#50), or West Virginia (#51).

The sad part? Even though Maryland ranked second of 51 (including D.C.), it only received a B+, suggesting even the best states still have a long way to go…

What do you think? Where have you seen the best (and worst) working conditions for women?!
