LA pays women 91.4% the salary they pay men. In Provo-Orem, Utath, women make 61.6% of what men make. Is your town on the list of the 10 Best-Paying Cities for Women?
I notice that several the cities in the Top 10 are "destinations" where a significant proportion of the jobs are likely to be in hospitality, tourist/service-oriented businesses — Tampa, Miami, Vegas, Sarasota. Not sure what that means exactly but I have a feeling that has a lot to do with the lower wage gaps.
Also... Texas?!? Not entirely horrible! Who knew!?
