The Equality State must lead by example in providing equal work for equal pay
July 4, 2019
CHEYENNE – Wyoming's official nickname is The Equality State. Wyoming has work to do to live up to that moniker.
June 10 was Equal Pay Day in Wyoming. It's the day of the year that represents the extra days in 2019 a woman has to work to earn the same amount of pay a man received for working in 2018. In other words, a woman in Wyoming has to work 17 months and 10 days to earn what a man in Wyoming earned in only 12 months. Remember also that the national Equal Pay Day was April 2. Wyoming does not score well here either. We are behind the national average by more than two months.
