Fortunately that is an improvement over past years, but it also leaves a lot to be desired. You can check it out over on the National Committee on Pay Equity's website. Here is a short summary.
Census statistics released on Women's Equality Day--August 26, 2008--show that the gap between men's and women's earnings changed by less than one percent from 2006 to 2007, narrowing only slightly from 76.9 to 77.8 percent. Based on the median earnings of full-time, year-round workers, women's earnings were $35,102, and men's earnings were $45,113. Median earnings for women of color are generally even lower, and all showed percentage drops in the last year. In 2007, the earnings for African American women were $31,009, 68.7 percent of men's earnings, a drop of more than 3 percent; Asian American women's earnings were $40,374, 89.5 percent of men's earnings, a drop of 3.5 percent; and Latinas earnings were $26,612, 59 perrcent of men's, a drop of .6 percent.
Quite honestly, it depresses me, so I am going to mull it over before making any broad statements. Thanks to the Oklahoma Women's Network blog for the link to the information.
