Study on equal pay for men and women ranks Louisiana last

UNDATED - The pay-gap between men and women has been a hot topic and according to one new study, Louisiana has a very long way to go in bridging it.

The findings show the state has the most unequal pay-gap in the US.

It states women in Louisiana make 65 cents to a man's dollar.

The new numbers are from the American Association of University Women and the federal government.

Researchers said a wage gap was present even when they compared similar jobs with similar education and experience.
