According to a recently-published article in Industry Week, "Women account for 83% of workers in middle-skill occupations that pay less than $30,000 per year, but only 36% of workers in such jobs that pay more than $35,000 per year. And they hold fewer than 10% percent of jobs in the growing areas of advanced manufacturing and transportation/distribution/logistics."
The Community College of Allegheny County is actively working to balance this equation by sponsoring Career Exploration Day: Women in Skilled Trades.
