It's a long-known truth that women and men who work the same job do not bring home the same amount of pay. Local women's advocates provided updated statistics on Thursday that show the gap remains wide for all women, but is worse for women of color. And women's groups say the inequality hurts not just the women but families and the entire economy.
There's apparently no end in sight to the pay differential between men and women. The ranking of new U.S. Census Bureau data, by Business First, shows men in the Buffalo area, on average, earn 39.1 percent more than women.
