Gender inequality is a major issue, especially when it comes to job and work environment. The fact is that men always get the biggest pay packages while their female counterpart are not considered.

The truth of that matter is that gender inequality at a place of work has denied so many women the opportunity to reach the top of the leader on several occasions.

In other words, some professions are not just meant women to compete with men when it comes to pay packages.

Top 10 professions that pay less for women

Getting fair pay has become really challenging no matter the nature of the job. Men tend to command better pay packages that women even though they both render the same services.

This is a practice that has been around since time immemorial. But it’s sad to say that this disparity is still very much around until this day.

“Here at Glassdoor, we believe in equal pay for equal work and also provide a platform for employers who want to pledge their commitment to equitable pay practices,” the Glassdoor team says in a blog post. “More than 1,700 employers to date have pledged to pay women and men equally for equal work and experience.”

Glassdoor also identified 10 jobs in which women earn about the same as men (Event Coordinator, Logistics Manager, Food Services Professional, Internal Medicine Resident, Technical Coordinator, Supply Chain Specialist, Academic Counselor, Clinical Dietician, Field Services, Professional, Hardware Engineer) and 10 in which women earn more than man (Social Worker, Merchandiser, Research Assistant, Purchasing Specialist, Physician Advisor, Communications Associate, Social Media Professional, Health Educator, Procurement Professional, Business Coordinator).

It’s worth noting the gap isn’t nearly as wide in the professions in which women earn more compared to those in which men do. You can check out the relevant numbers on the blog post.
