•  In 2012, 4% of male workers were in jobs with below-poverty-line wages.

•  In 2013, 58.6% of the population without a disability and 16 years of age and older was employed while 17.6% of the disabled population 16 years of age and over was employed.

•  In 2013, 6% of households headed by single women lived in poverty, while 15.9% of households headed by single men and 5.8% of married-couple households lived in poverty.

Just a few statistics regarding the participation of men and women in the workforce and their representation and earning power in various nontraditional career fields that are too important not to share.
