South Dakota men earn 22 cent per dollar more than women

Posted: Updated:

Women in South Dakota make just 78 cents on the dollar compared to men in the state.

That's according to analysis released today by the National Partnership for Women and Families. The group found women in the state made around $9,000 less than men.

South Dakota has the 26th largest gap in the nation.

According to the analysis, if the gap between men's and women's wages were eliminated, each full-time working woman in South Dakota could afford to pay for food for 1.4 more years, pay mortgage and utilities for eight more months, pay rent for 14 more months, or buy 2,500+ more gallons of gas.

Wyoming and North Dakota were in the top 10 states with the largest cents-on-the-dollar wage.
