‘A woman’s right to choose’: Who’s making it in the world of business?
Business Insider article 1 / 8 Business Insider A new study suggests that women in the U.S. are earning more money than men.
The results are based on data from an analysis of U.K. statistics from 2016.
The study, “Women’s earnings in the global economy: 2016,” is based on an analysis from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) of global labor market data.
The BEA defines “women” as anyone between the ages of 18 and 64.
Based on this data, the researchers calculated the median earnings of women in various industries.
The median wage for full-time employees in 2017 was $20.83 per hour, according to the BEA data.

Here’s the breakdown for each industry, based on the median wage: Agriculture: $14.82, or $18,200
