There is a gender wage gap between women and women in almost every common occupation, according to a new Institute for Women's Policy Research fact sheet.
In fact, the research shows that women only make 77 percent for every dollar earned annually by men and 82 percent of every dollar earned weekly. Women also have lower median earnings than men in all but one of the 20 most common occupations for women. Bookkeeping and auditing clerks account for the occupations where women and men have the same median earnings. For the 20 most common male occupations, stock clerks and order fillers represents the occupations where women earned more than men by 3 percent of median male earnings.
