US / Closing the Gender Wage Gap by Raising the Minimum Wage

Women working full time, year round typically make only 77 percent of what their male counterparts make – leaving a wage gap of 23 cents on the dollar.  One reason for this gap is that women are concentrated in low-wage jobs: two-thirds of minimum wage workers and workers in tipped occupations are women, disproportionately women of color.  Raising the minimum wage would help close this gap by increasing wages for workers at the bottom of the spectrum.  Raising the minimum wage and the tipped minimum wage are important steps towards fair pay for women – especially women of color.
