Girls Now Earn More Than Boys

Girls have fallen under Hermione Granger’s spell and just like Emma Watson are the highest young earners.31-01-2011
 For the first time in five years, girls now earn more from part-time working than boys, according to new research from Halifax Savings.
 
Although not quite at Emma Watson’s annual £19m – which crowned her as the youngest person and most wealthy woman in Vanity Fair’s list of Hollywood’s top earners - the average earnings for girls now reach almost £1k a year (£976.44.)  At £18.77 a week, this is 46 pence higher than boys’ wages (£18.31) and 25 pence above the average weekly wage for both sexes of £18.52.
