Study: Nebraska Women Paid Less than Men

Each year, Nebraska women lose enough wages to men to buy food for a year and a half, to pay 14 months of rent or to buy 2,700 gallons of gas.  The study, conducted by the National Partnership for Women and Families and released for Equal Pay Day shows that full-time women workers in Nebraska are paid just 77 cents for ever dollar paid to men. That's more than $9,600 a year.  Nebraska is ranked No. 22 in the list of states with the largest cents-on-the-dollar gap. Wyoming is ranked No. 1
