The Wage Gap Means Elderly Women Face Poverty

Wage Gap Alamy

This year, Equal Pay Day falls on April 20th. It may be too soon to call this a trend, however, some have projected that based on this rate it will take another 50 years or so to reach pay parity. This may be well and good for the female labour force of 2065 and beyond; however, what does the economic profile forecast for working women of today? Historical data paints a bleak future portrait of single elderly women. When segmented further by such criterion as ethnicity, the forecast presents a graver outcome for women of minority with a higher propensity of this population to live out their end-of-life years below the poverty level.
