Lingerie is a lucrative career choice for many women.
But the gender pay gap between men and women remains a hot topic in the media and on social media, according to a new study by the Center for Economic and Policy Research.
In fact, nearly three out of four American women in their 20s now work in the apparel and accessory industry.
And in 2017, there were 5 million women working in the industry, according a new report by the New York Times.
It’s a growing business that’s worth nearly $1 trillion in annual sales.
“There is no question that the demand for apparel is at an all-time high,” said Elizabeth Glidden, a senior researcher at the CEPPR, a think tank in Washington, D.C. “And yet, the pay gap is widening.”
That’s largely because the industry’s most skilled workers are disproportionately female.
A woman earns about 60 cents to the dollar for every dollar a man earns, according the report, which looked at women in retail, hospitality, food service, manufacturing, and construction.
“I think it’s fair to say that for most women, this is their first job,” said Katherine Hannon, who co-authored the study with Jennifer Mascaro.
But that doesn’t mean they’re always happy.
“When you get into a new job, you are really, really, very nervous,” said Hannon.
“You’re not just getting paid for doing your job.
“In a lot of cases, the HR staff will say, ‘No, you can’t come back to the office, you need to go back home.'” “
In 2017, women made up 43 percent of all workers in the retail and hospitality industry, while men made up 41 percent. “

“The most common complaint that women have is that they are underpaid,” said Glidden.
“Women who have worked in the past have seen that as a big deal.
But I also think it does have a positive impact because you can feel the excitement, the excitement of going into that new job and then having the excitement and the freedom of moving into the next one.”
The report, published online Tuesday by the Brookings Institution and the University of California, Davis, found that women were paid nearly three times what men for similar jobs.
For example, women in hospitality were paid about $1,800 for every $1 earned by a man.
And when it comes to retail, women were making $3,500 per hour for every man’s $2,400.
“For women in this category, they’ve been working in this field for longer, but that hasn’t been reflected in their wages,” Glidden said.
The pay gap also varies depending on the company.
“Men make more money, but they also are able to have more flexibility with their pay,” said Mascario.
“It’s a great opportunity to take advantage of a job that you’re good at.”
One way to make money in the lingerie industry is to make your own designs.
“Lingerie companies don’t have to go through a model or make you a model,” said Jennifer Mascalaro, a professor at UC Davis.
“They just have to make a product that they can sell.”
The more skilled the designer, the more lucrative it is, said Gliddings research.
For a lingerie model, that means a good tailor who can create the look of any outfit and a sewing machine.
