Women Still Trail Men in Higher-Paying Posts
Women hold nearly half the executive and managerial jobs in the United States, but they fall short of men at the top rungs of the salary ladder, the Census Bureau reported.
Nearly 46% of management positions were filled by women in 2002, up from only about a third in 1983 but virtually unchanged from a record high set in 2001.
Almost 16% of men working full time earned at least $75,000 a year, compared with 6% of women. And 20% of men made between $50,000 and $75,000, compared with 12% of women.
