Report: Women In Wyoming Government Hold Few High Paying Jobs

Amy Richards\TSM

A new report finds that women working in Wyoming’s state government hold relatively few high-paid, management jobs.

The report prepared by the state Department of Administration and Information found only one out of five state employees making $150,000-$200,000 a year were women. The reverse was true for lower-paid jobs. Nearly three out of four employees earning between $20,000-$30,000 were women. Agency director Dean Fausset says of the 1,800 supervisory or management positions in the state government, slightly more than one out of three supervisors are women.

Fausset tells the  Associated Press that the disparity is due to a lack of women applicants in some top-paying jobs, including engineering careers. He says that publishing information of the gender gap may encourage state agency administrators to think closely about women’s salaries.
