Women with children earn about 22% less than their male colleagues, according to a new report that explores the "devastating" impact of motherhood on earnings.
"Before becoming parents, men and women are equally likely to be employed, but childbirth marks the start of a great divide, which continues even after children have left home and does lasting damage to women's careers," the report finds.
Women with children are rather costly to employ.
While we don't want to admit it, and we get all mad about it...it's true.
We were led to believe that we could do it all.
It's a Feminist Lie.
The truth of the matter is that when you have children, they have to come first...before your job, and I suppose there is ultimately a cost for that.
Especially when there is some childless person who is willing to do the time that you can't.
