A new study says it will be nearly 70 years before women in New Hampshire earn what men earn for the same job.
The Institute for Women's Policy Research said it will take until the year 2082 until women in the Granite State see equal pay to men, ranking the 12th worst state in the US for the time it will take to break through the glass ceiling.
Florida may be the first to see equal pay with a projected date of 2038. Wyoming is more than 100 years off, its projection set at 2159.
Over a third of New Hampshire women work part-time. Some by choice, others can't find full-time work. On average in 2013 New Hampshire women earned $52,000, while men earn $80,000.
2015 marks the enactment of the New Hampshire Pay Equity Act, which prohibits unequal pay for equal work, skill, effort and responsibility, performed under similar working conditions.
It also says employers can't stop employees from talking about their pay, compensation or benefits with others.
