Texas ranks 10th worst for women
SAN ANTONIO – Texas is on a top 10 list that’s not something to brag about, and NAFTA talks are going down to the wire. Jane King has that and more in today’s report.
Texas a ‘worst’ state for women
A new study says Texas is the 10th worst state for women.
According to WalletHub, women "still get the short end of the stick" in many states, even though they outnumber men in most states. WalletHub says that when it comes to salary, women make up nearly two-thirds of all minimum-wage workers, and when it comes to political representation, women make up 51% of the U.S. population but only 22% of the Senate and 19.3% of the House of Representatives.
Texas also has the lowest share of insured women in the nation and one of the lowest percentages of women who voted in the 2016 presidential election.
