Earnings Men V. Women with higher degrees

11 Aug

Recent numbers from a Georgetown study reporting the same stats we’ve seen before:
“Women have to have a PhD to make as much as men with a BA.The study also starts off by noting, ‘The findings are stark: Women earn less at all degree levels, even when they work as much as men. On average, women who work full-time, full-year earn 25 percent less than men, even at similar education levels. At all levels of educational attainment, African Americans and Latinos earn less than Whites.’

Oh, and in case you were wondering if getting a college degree is worth it, ‘Having some postsecondary education, even without earning a degree, adds nearly onequarter of a million dollars to lifetime earnings,’ the study says.”
