Why women won't earn equal pay till 2058

Posted: Updated:

New projections from a research group finds the gender wage gap won't close until 2058.

The gap averages the difference between full-time pay for men versus women.

Many currently working will never see equal pay as their male co-workers before they retire. 

The Institute for Women's Policy Research group cites economic problems as hurting women’s wage growth and a lack of motivation to change.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, the group’s president said that no one is really convinced as to what is the real reason behind slow wage growth.

The article cites U.S. Census Bureau data finding since 2007 women are earning about 77 cents for every dollar that men earn.
