To determine the worst paying jobs for women, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the median weekly income by profession for both men and women across 120 occupations from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The worst paying jobs for women were those in which women earned the least compared to men in their field. Only income data for full-time workers were considered. Total employment figures, gender composition, and educational requirements also came from the BLS. We also considered median weekly income and employment figures from 2007. Estimated annual compensation was calculated by multiplying median weekly income by 52.
