The gap is closing between what men and women earn on the job, but it’s closing at a slow pace.The latest report based on U-S Census data finds Iowa women make about 73 cents for every dollar made by Iowa men. That’s about a nickel higher than a decade ago, but still about middle of the road compared to the nation as a whole. Hawaii has the smallest gap at 80-cents for women to the men’s dollar. The largest margin is in Wyoming at 63-cents to the dollar. Analysts say sexual discrimination may play a part in the gender salary gap, but it’s also due to occupational opportunities and career choices.
