(Reno, NV)  —  A new report says full-time working Nevada women make less every year than their male counterparts.  The “Reno Gazette-Journal” says the findings by two women’s groups show a Nevada woman makes on average nearly $7800 a year less than a man. 

The National Partnership for Women and Families and the American Association of University Women warn the gender salary gap does quote, “very real harm” to both the state and working families. 

The report says nearly one out of four Nevada households headed by women live below the poverty line.
