Family pay gap shrinks as fathers earn less and mothers earn more

A new research study completed by the Research Foundation had found that the gender pay gap between mothers and fathers has been decreasing over the last several years. The study attributes this decrease to a change is working patterns in which mothers are more likely to strive for a career path in the workforce rather than remain a stay at home mom. The study also found that there is no gender gap for people in their 20s and that women in that age group are more likely to receive a higher salary than their partner.
