Copywriting is one of the fastest-growing career fields in the country, according to a new study.
Researchers at the University of Michigan surveyed more than 700 female graduate students and compared the pay of their jobs in a range of fields.
They found that the pay gap is narrowing and the pay for women has been increasing for years.
Women in STEM fields earned more than men in all fields except computer science, according the study.
The pay gap was narrower for the lowest-paid female employees.
Women’s pay has been on the rise since 2011, when the last year data was available.
The average wage for a women in STEM was $51,500 in 2016.
That compares to the average wage of $53,500 for a man in the same field, according data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Women earn $52,000 more than their male colleagues in a typical year, according a 2016 study by the Economic Policy Institute, an advocacy group for women.
Women are making more than twice as much as men in their fields.
The gap between male and female paychecks is shrinking.
The gender pay gap in STEM has narrowed to the point where it’s no longer significant, according Brian Blau, associate director of the Institute for Women in the Workforce, which researches women in the workforce.
“This is a good day for women,” said Lisa Loomis, the institute’s executive director.
“It’s also a good thing because it will create jobs for women.”
Women are more likely to enter STEM fields than men, according Blau.
About 6.4% of engineering and computer science graduates in the United States are women, according U.S. News & World Report.
That’s about three times the share of graduates who are men.
