Tuesday is Equal Pay Day, a day set apart to raise awareness of the gender pay gap. According to the National Committee on Pay Equity, the date “symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.”  

U.S. Census Bureau statistics state that nationwide, median pay for women is 80% of the median pay for men. 

Many factors play into the discussion of equal gender pay, but where do Utah County women stand in the workplace? The following data comes from the most recent American Community Survey from the U.S. Census Bureau and from the Utah Department of Workforce Services.
