Women not bringing home much bacon in Idaho

Women in Idaho are among the nation’s lowest wage earners, the Census Bureau reported this morning.

Median earnings for Idaho women were $29,122 last year – 72 percent of the $40,440 median earnings for men. Women are paid less in just five states, including Montana.

In Washington, women earn 75.1 percent of what men make. Median earnings last year were $38,521 for women and $51,305 for men.
