Continuing gender pay gap 'disappointing,' but Northeast Florida women's advocates optimistic

April 13, 2018

In Northeast Florida women who work full-time year-round earn 70 to 86 cents for every dollar earned by men working the same amount of time, according to a new report by the Florida Women’s Funding Alliance.

The largest area pay gap is in St. Johns County and the smallest in Duval County, but both fall short of the statewide earnings ratio of 87.5, according to The Status of Women in Florida by County: Employment & Earnings, compiled by the Washington-based Institute for Women’s Policy Research. The report was done in partnership with the Florida Alliance and its parent organization, the Florida Philanthropic Network.
