Abstract

A study by the University of Maine at Orono's Margaret Chase Smith Center for Public Policy shows that 60 percent of Maine women over the age of 16 are working, and they make only two-thirds of the income earned by the average man. The average Maine woman, working full-time, earns $17,406, compared to the average male salary of $26,024. A woman with a bachelor's degree earns less than a man with just a high school diploma.
