Cecil Times: CENSUS: Cecil County Women–Smarter but Poorer?

From Cecil Times

Cecil County women are better educated than men in the county but they earn significantly less money from their jobs than less-educated men, according to new three-year data issued this week by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The discrepancies in income are not easily explained by the cliched notions that women work part-time, or drop out of the work force, to care for children and family members. The statistics show that women living in Cecil County are working at equal rates with men but their work is not obeing rewarded with equal pay. Women with higher education levels make less money than less-educated men. But equally educated men and women only make similar salaries if they are employed by the federal government, where there are strong anti-discriminatory rules in place.
