A recent study conducted by the Minnesota Population Center’s Integrated Public Use Microdata Series program showed that the gender pay gap does in fact exist for workers at every age.
Business Insider notes that this “pay gap tended to be larger for older workers than for younger workers”, and widens as individuals age.
“While the median female 18-year-old worker earned about 89% of the median male 18-year-old, the median 65-year-old female earned about 76% of the median 65-year-old male.”
