Unmarried Young Women with No Children Earn More than Men
This ABCNews video shows women who are under 30, unmarried, with no children, earn an average of 8% more than their counterpart. In New York City, young women make 17% more. This could be explained by the fact that there are more female than male college graduates, with a ratio of 3:2. A college graduate earns almost $30,000 more than a high school graduate. I believe this group of young female professionals is also more flexible in terms of work, work hours, and locations (i.e. travelling). Being flexible is also very important in career success.
