Charlie Rose sacked by CBS over harassment allegations

Many powerful Americans have faced accusations of sexual misconduct recently, but previously unpublished data from the Center for American Progress indicates sexual harassment is more common at lower-paying jobs.

    One of the US' most recognisable broadcasters, Charlie Rose, has been fired by CBS and PBS after eight women accused him of improper behaviour.

    Although Rose is the latest in a string of high-profile Americans to face sexual misconduct accusations, a new US study has revealed that sexual harassment occurs at a higher rate in low-paid jobs.

    And those positions, such as in healthcare, retail and the food service industry, are held predominantly by women.
