A new study by NerdWallet names the City of Santa Barbara as one of 17 American cities where women workers out-earn their male colleagues. In 2014, full-time female workers across all industries in Santa Barbara made 15.4 percent more annually than their male counterparts. But monthly rent drained 40.4 percent of those women’s median earnings ​— ​notably the highest earnings above men and the steepest rent stats on the finance website’s top-100 cities for women in the workforce, which ranks Santa Barbara last.
