“Women reach their peak earning potential some 11 years before men and earn a salary almost $35,000 lower than their male counterparts, a new study has found.
The report, conducted by salary site PayScale, found that the typical university-educated woman in the U.S. sees her career earnings peak when she is 44 years old, earning an average of $66,700.
