Female programmers are paid 28 percent less than men

We_Can_Do_It!Female computer programmers are paid 28 per cent less than male programmers, according to a new Glass Door survey.

Glass Door adjusted its figures to take into account age, education, years of experience, job title, employer and location and looked at salary data of more than 500,000 people over 140 professions.

In the US  generally women earn 94.6 cents for every man’s dollar after adjusting for all factors other than gender. In other words, the wage gap in the U.S. is about 5.4 percent.But in the tech industry the wage gap is huge.

Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist at Glassdoor said that for every dollar a bloke makes doing the same job, a woman would make the following:

Game Artist – $0.84
Information Security Specialist – $0.85
Data Specialist – $0.76
Software Architect – $0.89
SEO Strategist – $0.90
Front End Engineer – $0.90
Database Engineer – $0.90
Sharepoint Developer – $0.91
SAP Developer – $0.92

Two professions in great demand show women doing at or better than the national average:

Software Engineer – $0.94
Mobile Developer – $0.97
On the downside, as tech jobs open up in other fields such as health care and media, the gender wage gap increases there, Chamberlain said.
