According to an article writing by LendEDU, Waterloo has been recognized for shrinking its gender pay gap at one of the fastest rates in the country & state of Iowa over the last decade. LendEDU used earnings data from the U.S. Census Bureau to analyze nearly 1,000 cities. In 2010, the gender pay gap in Waterloo was 27.41%, while it improved to 22.61% in 2018. This gender pay gap change of -4.80% ranked Waterloo #229 in the country, and #2 in the state of Iowa.
Congratulation to the City of Waterloo on this accomplishment! Though we understand there is more work to be done, we are excited about the progress that has been made and look forward to future growth and equality for everyone in the Cedar Valley.
