These 25 Jobs Have the Worst Gender Pay Gap

From the State of the Union to the Democratic debates, liberal politicians are bringing renewed focus to the fact that women make less than men for doing the same jobs across hundreds of occupations. Two weeks ago, we published an interactive calculator, reproduced below, that allows you to see how much more or less you would make if you were the opposite gender based on your occupation and age.

After going through the 460 occupations in our data, we determined the 25 worst offenders, listed below. So if you pay a woman to do your taxes this year, tip her well. Her male colleagues are making more than twice as much on average.
