The female mechanic is earning more money than the male mechanic in the United States, but women are less likely to enter that field.
That’s according to a study published Tuesday in the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, which looked at the median salary for women and men in the automotive industry.
The report found that the median female mechanic’s median salary was $66,600, compared with $74,400 for a male mechanic.
The median male mechanic’s average salary was also $66.4 million, compared to $75.7 million for a female.
This means that a female worker earns $67,200, or about $1,000 more than the median male worker.
Women are also less likely than men to enter the industry, the report found.
A study published in the American Economic Review in 2011 found that women were only 7.6 percent of full-time workers, but 26 percent of part-time.
That gender gap in career advancement is more pronounced in manufacturing than it is in other fields, the study found.
The report found the gender gap was even greater in manufacturing with the number of full and part-timers in manufacturing growing by more than 40 percent from 2007 to 2012.
While women still earn less than men in manufacturing, they are more likely to be hired, the researchers said.
They also found that female engineers were more likely than their male counterparts to land a job.
The median female engineer’s salary was roughly $73,800, compared a male engineer’s $71,200.
And the median engineer’s hourly wage was about $21.50, compared in 2011 to $25.80 for the median man.
