A new report says Idaho woman earn less then their male counterparts. According to a study released today by the National Partnership for Women & Families, Idaho women earn $29,122, men $40,440, creating a 26 percent gap and total differential of $2.1 billion. The gap represents 85 more weeks of food, nine months of mortgage payments, or 16 months of rent. Slightly more than 15,500 families living in poverty would benefit if pay was equal. The statistics were released the day before Equal Pay Day, the end of the period women must work in 2011 to catch up with compensation earned by men in 2010. The gap has closed at a rate of one-half cent per year since passage of the 1963 Equal Pay Act. At that rate, the Partnership says, pay for women will not match that for men until 2958.
