Industrial journalist, Thomas R. Cutler recently reported in the April issue of Manufacturing Outlook magazine that the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) job gap for women is narrowing, but still a wage gap continues compared to men in STEM professions. Read the recent article here.
Women in computer, engineering, and science occupations — or tech jobs, for the purposes of a recent study — in Cape Coral, FL and Winston-Salem, NC make more than men on average, according to a MagnifyMoney analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data.
MagnifyMoney content director Ismat Mangla said, “If women can succeed — and attain pay parity with men — in a place that’s less expensive to live in, all the better. That means that women can save money, put more toward investing and making their nest eggs grow, and help build the culture and community that doesn’t have a huge national spotlight yet.”
Since women in tech are generally ahead of women in other industries when it comes to income, they might be better positioned to push for institutional change. By 2029 more than one-third of all manufacturers under $50M in revenue will be owned and led by women. This will ensure that more women are hired and paid equitable wages as well as encourage legislative protection against unfair pay practices.
