This won’t come as a shock, but women are still paid less than men for almost every job there is.  In fact, last year in all occupations, women made 81 cents to the dollar.

But Forbes has a new list of occupations where women earn MORE than men.  Here are six of them:

#1.) Preschool and Kindergarten Teachers. The median salary for both sexes combined is $612 a week, and the median for just women is $614 a week.

They don’t even have the individual salary stats for men, because 98% of preschool and kindergarten teachers are female.

#2.)  Teaching Assistants. Male teaching assistants earn a median income of $453 a week, compared to $474 for women, which is 5% more.

#3.)  Mechanics. Whether you’re talking about car mechanics or aircraft mechanics, women earn slightly more in both jobs.  But 97% of mechanics are men.

#4.)  Dieticians and Nutritionists. 83% of them are female, and women earn $11 more per week than the median salary for both sexes.

#5.)  Busboys. Busboys earn about 11% less than bus-GIRLS do.  Each week, the median income for a female busser or barback is $400, compared to $360 for guys.  And that works out to an extra $2,000 a year.

#6.)  Occupational Therapists. According to the stats, female therapists make slightly more than men.  And according to Forbes, it’s one of the best-paying jobs for women.

The median income for a female occupational therapist is around $60,000 a year, and some make closer to $100,000 a year.
