Lifetime Earning Gaps Still Wide

By August 15, 2011

Follow me on:

Recent data shows that the lifetime wage earnings for women remain significantly below that of men of the same education level, with women earning about 25% less than men at the same educational level. What's more, the benefits of education also vary by race and ethnicity. Non-Hispanic Whites earn more money than any other race or ethnicity at every educational level, with Asians only exceeding Whites at the very highest educational levels.
