For The Ladies: U.S. Cities With The Worst Paying Jobs For Women

- By Bossip Staff Categories: For the Ladies, News, When The Checks Stop Coming In

1. Baton Rouge, LA
Women’s pay as pct. of men’s: 63.4%
Median income for men: $51,103
Median income for women: $32,385

On average, a full-time working woman doesn’t even earn two thirds of what her male counterpart earns in the Baton Rouge metropolitan area. According to the Baton Rouge Area Chamber, the city’s largest employers are industrial construction company Turner Industries, the Louisiana State University System, engineering, procurement, and construction conglomerate Shaw Group, and industrial contractor Performance Contractors. Although LSU is an outlier, the other companies paint a picture of an industrial-leaning economy, which operates primarily in construction and the manufacturing of durable goods — two sectors with some of the worst gaps in pay between men and women. The state of Louisiana also has the greatest pay disparity in the country, with women earning 67.2% of what men do in the entire state.
