United States Gender Wage Gap Wider

The World Economic Forum (WEF) said in its latest Global Gender Gap report that the slow pace at which the global gender pay gap is narrowing means women are now earning what men did a decade ago.
In the United States, the gap is 64%, meaning that women earn about two-thirds of what men make for similar work.
This is worse than it was last year, when the gap was 66%. The United Stated now ranks 74th in wage equality among 145 countries. Last year, it was 65th.
