WAGE GAP

Men Even Outearn Women in Nursing

Further proof that the wage gap can’t simply be chalked up to some careers being dominated by men: Researchers found that even in nursing, a field that is roughly 90 percent female, men make an average of $5,100 more than women in similar positions. The difference is most pronounced among nurse anesthetists, a field where men earn an average of $17,290 more.
