10 Worst Industries for Women

Monday, April 18, 2011
Women continue to make less money than men, earning on average about 80% of male salaries. According to the website 24/7 Wall St., the disparity in wages is even greater in some sectors, as seen in the list of 10 worst industries for women in terms of pay:
 
1. Finance and insurance (62.2%)
2. Professional and technical services (65.9%)
3. Health care and social assistance (71.8%)
4. Nondurable Goods (73.8%)
5. Durable Goods (74.9%)
6. Utilities (75.8%)
7. Information (75.8%)
8. Public Administration (78.5%)
9. Wholesale Trade (79.3%)
10. Retail Trade (79.5%)
 
According to Charles Stockdale and Douglas A. McIntyre of 247wallst.com, the finance and insurance sector has retained its place as the worst for women despite a series of sex discrimination lawsuits. In fact, Citigroup, AIG, First American Financial Corporation and INTL FCStone Inc. (International Asset Holdings) have a grand total of zero female officers.
