“All the women who are independent, throw your hands up at me.
All the honeys who makin’ money, throw your hands up at me.”
Yes, I’m in the mood for some Destiny’s Child today. Who wouldn’t, after learning that female futures traders in Australia earn a jaw-dropping average income of $315,197. That’s 4% more than their male counterparts.
According to Australian Taxation Office, future traders is just one of the 72 out of 1100 jobs where women earn more than men. This information is based on ATO’s annual Tax Statistics for the financial year of 2016-2017. Definitely not a throwback.
Female authors, magistrates, pro surfers and illustrators are some other occupations who earn more than their male equivalents.
5 out of the top 10 highest earning occupations in Australia are from the medical field. Surgeons remain at the top spot with an average taxable income of $394,866.
