Big Gender Pay Gap Still Exists For NJ Women

A New Jersey woman earns less than 71-percent of what a man earns. U.S. Census data released today shows Garden State men earned a median annual income of almost 52-thousand-dollars last year, compared to just over 36-thousand-dollars for women.  Experts blame the gender pay gap on job discrimination, lack of affordable day care and the fact that many women gravitate toward part-time jobs or low-paying jobs in education, retail and healthcare.  New Jersey lawmakers tried to pass a pay discrimination bill earlier this year guaranteeing women "equal pay for equal work," but Governor Christie vetoed it.
