Women in Pennsylvania earn 73 cents for every dollar earned by men in similar positions, compared to the national average of 77 cents on the dollar.

And in case you were thinking it’s all because of parenting, think again. A study by the American Association of University Women found that the gap appears right after college, when women are not compensated for superior academic performance comparable to their male peers.

Only one year into their careers, women’s paychecks shrink to 80 percent of those brought home by their male counterparts.
