Editor’s Note: The table is the story, with lots of statistics. Example: The median annual wage for working full-time and year-around in Minnesota in 2006 was $41,858 for men and $33,024 for women – 79% of what men earned. Women of color fared even worse, with a median wage of only $28, 073. (Scroll down for full chart.)
And then there are elementary and secondary schools, the number one industry segment employing women. Even there, men earn more.
