A new study lists the top 10 jobs with the biggest gender pay gaps … and insurance topped the list.

Based on data compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ recent report and 24/7 Wall St, the 10 occupations where the median weekly full-time income among women was smallest as a percent of mens’ earnings have been identified.

Researchers found female insurance agents brought in just 62.5% of their male counterparts in 2012.

Retail had the second biggest gap with women in the field earning 64.3% of what men make.

Do you believe these findings?  Why do you think these professions have such pay disparity between the sexes? Does your job appear on the list?  Leave me your thoughts in the comments section below.
