March 12, 2015
The typical woman born between 1955 and 1959 has lost $531,502 in cumulative lifetime earnings because of America’s gender-pay gap, according to a new report from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research.
Losses from the gap accumulate over the course of a woman’s lifetime, and each year represented tens of thousands of lost dollars, the group says.
