Women's pay in Florida worsening, but gap closing, report says

Release Date: 
04/10/2018

The gender pay gap in Florida is closing, but not for good reason.

Women’s median annual earnings in the state have fallen in the past decade, yet the wage gap has narrowed due to an even sharper decline in men’s earnings in the wake of the Great Recession.

That is one of the takeaways from a report called “The Status of Women in Florida by County: Employment & Earnings,” released Monday. Its timing coincides with Equal Pay Day, which is Tuesday.

A month after Legislature failed to act on #MeToo, report finds Florida lags on women’s pay

Release Date: 
04/10/2018

A report by a national women's policy research group found that Florida ranks very low nationwide for women's participation in the workforce, median pay and share of women in top professional roles.

While the causes of these failures are complex, these findings came exactly a month after the Florida Legislature failed to address a problem that leadership from both chambers had said was a priority to fix: sexual harassment in the workplace.
