The 10 Largest Jobs Paying Under $10.10/Hour Are Majority Women
Women have a particular stake in raising the minimum wage. Women are the majority of workers in each of the ten largest occupations that typically pay less than $10.10 per hour, and about two-thirds or more of the workers in seven of these occupations. Increasing the minimum wage and tipped minimum wage are key steps toward fair pay for women.
The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013 would gradually raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour, increase the tipped minimum cash wage from $2.13 per hour to 70 percent of the minimum wage, and index these wages to keep pace with inflation.
