What pay gap?
In contrast with national figures, New York women age 25-34 are making more money than men. A new study released by the Institute for Women's Policy Research says women working full time make $1.02 compared to men's $1. It also found that 47% of women in New York hold a bachelor's degree or better, compared to 38% of men.
But New York is the only state where women make more than or even as much as men. On average they make 89 cents to the male's 1 dollar.
The study, first reported by Glamour, also compared the states based on women's salaries, health and drinking rates.
