Instiz: Average annual salary of SM, YG, and JYP workers (summary)

- Look at the difference between YG's male and female salaries...

- At least SM has the smallest difference between male and female salaries

- It's awesome how JYP only has full-time employees

- Male and female salaries are different because their jobs are different

- If that's for the big 3, then imagine small companies... sobs

- Entertainment industry is known to be paying poorly... People work there for a few years for experience to get into a major company

- I wonder what they do. Is it similar to normal companies?
