    Average woman worker loses nearly half a million to pay discrimination - Press Associates, Inc. via Workday Minnesota
    The greatest difference between men and women workers was in legal services. That's because while 51% of the legal profession is female, the women start out in lower pay brackets and are concentrated in the lower-paying areas of the legal world. The men are the high-paid law firm partners, the women are lower-paid legal aides.

    The smallest lifetime gap was among 'installation, maintenance and repair workers,' where the difference was only $84,000 over a working woman's lifetime. But even then, there was a problem, Arons noted: The profession is only 4% female.

    'It should be hard to have any gap when virtually no women work in a given field. The fact that a wage gap exists at all, despite being the smallest gap, suggests pay
    equity remains a large problem in that sector. Moreover, it is evident additional effort is needed to better integrate the entire workforce,' she said.
