Clearwater Among Best Paying Cities for Women

Clearwater-St. Pete-Tampa made the Top 10 list of Best Paying Cities for Women.

The Clearwater-St. Pete-Tampa area just squeaked into a Top 10 list of the highest paying regions for women in the U.S. to work.

Clearwater-St. Pete-Tampa was No. 10 on the list, which is still a coveted ranking. Another southwest Florida region also performed well: The Sarasota-Bradenton area came in third place, according to Loop21.com.

It's commonly known that women in full-time jobs make less than their male counterparts (an average of 78 percent as a percentage of men's salaries).

But the wage gap varies, depending on geographical area, according to the Institute for Women's Policy Research.
