The textile industry is a lucrative, highly visible, and lucrative industry.
But, according to a new report from the American Federation of Labor, women make up only 13% of textile workers.
And when they are, the report found that the median pay for women in the textile and textile-manufacturing industries is $30,000 less than men.
The report, “The Female Wages of the Textile Industry: Why Women Are Still Only 13%,” finds that women account for less than 12% of those employed in the industry, but that the wage gap remains large.
For example, in 2015, according a survey by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women accounted for 27% of workers who earned more than $30.60 an hour, while men earned 26%.
Women also make up less than a third of the workforce in the apparel and shoe manufacturing industry.
According to the Bureau of Industry and Security, women in apparel and footwear make just under $15,000 an year compared to men’s wages of $20,000.
The industry, meanwhile, has historically been dominated by men, with an estimated 2.3 million textile workers in 2015.
But according to the report, there are now more women than men working in the garment industry, and they are starting to make significant contributions to the economy.
The report found women make the majority of the apparel manufacturing workers, and in addition to women, there is a gender wage gap for footwear workers.
Women make up 16% of all textile workers, but make up 15% of the footwear manufacturing workers.
Women also make about a third, or nearly 12, of the total workforce in footwear manufacturing, according the report.
