*Summary:** *The number of U.S. women employed full-time grew after the worst recession in seven decades even as the male workforce shrank. The number of dollars in their paychecks relative to men’s hardly rose at all.
Women earned about 79 cents for every $1 made by men, according to the 2009-11 American Community Survey, a poll of 9 million households conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. That was up from 78 cents in the 2007-09 survey. The data, released today, showed 680,300 more women and 1.9 million fewer men were working than during the previous three-year period.
