Maryland Working Women Still Lag Behind Men

WASHINGTON - Across the nation, women earn less than their male counterparts, make up a majority of minimum wage workers and carry the greatest burden when it comes to balancing family life with work.

In Maryland, women have it a little better -- earning 85 cents on every dollar white men earn, 8 cents above the national average. Overall, women are doing better economically than their counterparts in any other state, according to a report by the Center for American Progress.

But a closer look at the data shows that not all women in Maryland, particularly women of color, are doing as well.

Somebody forgot to tell Perdue Corporate about this. Nothing but women in high level positions everywhere I look.

Good or bad, it's much harder for a male to climb the ladder there.
