20 Worst Paying Jobs for Women

Print Email


To identify the worst paying jobs for women, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the difference in median weekly wages between men and women in 2018 for 124 full-time occupations from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey (CPS), a Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) program.

Total employment, male and female employment, employment projections from 2016 to 2026, and education requirements also came from the BLS. For employment projections and 10-year changes in median weekly wages, only jobs with consistent standard occupational codes are comparable between years. Broad occupational categories that subsumed more precise designations were not considered.
