Equal Pay Day: The shocking profession with the biggest gender wage gap

One profession appears to be lagging behind all the rest when it comes to women’s pay.

Female personal financial advisers make little more than half (56.4%) of what their male counterparts make, compared to 83% overall, facing the widest wage gap across all occupations, according to a new analysis by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, a Washington, D.C.-based research organization, which has analyzed salary trends for women and men since 1960. The institute made its calculations based on 2017 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“Each week, women financial advisers on average make $760 less than their male colleagues,” says Ariane Hegewisch, program director for employment and earnings at the institute.
