That’s how much money some working women are missing out on as a result of wage disparities among genders. According to the Huffington Post:
“The typical full-time working woman stands to miss out on $443,360 over 40 years because of the gender wage gap, according to an April report from the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC). That means a woman would have to work 12 years longer then her male counterpart just to break even.”
With that much time and money I could pay off my $90,000 student loan bill and get 2 doctorates. I could travel the world and start a family. I could buy a home, a fairly nice one depending on where I live. I could start a social justice organization. I could buy this purse (more than 15 times). The possibilities are endless.
It sucks that wage disparities still exist at the literal expense of women.
