San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
Recent research from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research shows that women in business and finance in San Antonio, Texas are paid 87.6% of what their male counterparts make. Far from equal, this is notably the ninth-smallest percentage difference in the country in this field. On average, San Antonio women are paid 85.5% of what their male counterparts earn.
This research reveals that women are making, on average, $6,000 less than men – better than the national average, but not good enough. For many women, that $6,000 could be put to good use: it could provide food for their families, cover health insurance premiums or deductibles, or go towards home or vehicle repairs that they are forced to put off. For single mothers, the gap is even more pronounced.
These findings come on the heels of a report by the Principal Financial Well Being Index which showed that 49% of American workers would not be prepared to handle an unexpected expense in any given month.
Women in San Antonio who find themselves in a situation that requires financial assistance now have an alternative resource: San Antonio Car Title Loans provides Texas residents with financial relief in the form of secure, low-interest loans. These loans are different from traditional bank loans in that they do not consider one’s credit score when determining loan eligibility; instead, they base the loan on the value of the borrower’s vehicle. Borrowers can receive the money they need in as little as an hour of loan approval, allowing them to address urgent financial matters.
Until the wage gap is closed, women – especially single mothers – will struggle to make ends meet. San Antonio Car Title Loans strives to provide these working women with financial assistance when they need it most.
