Men In Pink - Today's Men Are Opting For Jobs In Non-Traditional Areas

Pink Collar

In the past 10 years, the number of men doing 'pink collar' jobs has doubled. (Not sure what a 'pink collar' job is? Neither were we.)

According to this info-graphic from WorkBoots.com, a record number of men are trading in their work boots to take on job opportunities that are traditionally held by women. Librarians, nurses and dental hygienists are amongst the jobs that more men are making their way into, and in a world where men and women are becoming more and more equal, this may not be surprising. However, what is a little surprising is the statistic that even in 'pink collar' jobs, men can still be paid up to 65% more than women in the same job.
