Here’s what we know for sure about the wage gap: Data from the U.S. Census Bureau found that women earn 77 or 78 cents for every dollar a man makes. So, you can be doing the exact same job as a dude and make way less money…for no reason other than your gender.
Unfortunately, it looks like we’re not going to catch up anytime soon: A recent study from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) predicts that women won’t make the same as men until 2058.
So, yes, the wage gap most definitely exists, and it will be around for a long time unless we do something about it. Spread the facts!
