Wyoming is worst state in terms of pay equity for women

Wyoming has been rated the worst state in the nation in terms of pay equity; on average, women here only make 63 cents for every dollar a man makes. Is it always good to be number one? There are limits to what the Legislature can do since most jobs are in the private sector, but some action could be taken in terms of making sure that public sector employment is equal and that laws against pay discrimination are enforced.
