Stats on Closing the Wage Gap

Updated: Jan 12, 2019

If the annual wage gap were eliminated, on average, a working woman in Wyoming would have enough money for:


  • 30.5 more months of child care;

  • Nearly four years of tuition and fees for a four-year public university, or the full cost of tuition and fees at a two-year community college;

  • Approximately 133 more weeks of food for her family (2.6 years’ worth);

  • 14.6 more months of mortgage and utilities payments; or

  • More than 24 additional months of rent.
