These 10 U.S. Cities Are the Worst-Paying for Women — It’s Like We’re Still Living in the 1960’s

Gender Pay Gap

Nationwide — There is a battle going on and it’s been waging since the 1960’s. It’s the war over equal pay, and women continue to fight this battle to this day. Although progress has been made in some parts of the country, there are other areas that still seem to be stuck in the 1960’s.

The gender pay gap, as it’s known, is still alive and well in many areas. 24/7 Wall St, an online resource for financial news, reviewed 100 metro areas across America to find the cities with the smallest and widest gender wage gap. Here is what they discovered.

Here are the top 10 cities with the worst pay for women (in percent of wages paid to men):

#1 – Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Connecticut (72.6 percent)
#2 – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (72.5 percent)
#3 – Ogden-Clearfield, Utah (71.5 percent)
#4 – St. Louis, Missouri (71.2 percent)
#5 – Birmingham-Hoover, Alabama (71.0 percent)
