Gender pay gap smallest for millennials, Gen Z, widest for older generations

Article here. Excerpt:

'A new PayScale study on the gender pay gap found that younger generations are faring much better than their older counterparts. When the pay gap is controlled — comparing the pay for men and women doing the same job in the same geographic location, same experience, education, etc. — women under the age of 30 are paid 99 cents for every dollar that a man earns. The gap continues to widen with each age range, but still stays close; women 45 and up are paid 98 cents for every dollar a man earns.
PayScale says this year its study focused on neutralizing the pay gap. According to a 2018 World Economic Forum report, it would take another 108 years to close the global gender pay gap. But according to PayScale’s findings, a transparent pay process reduced, or effectively eliminated the gender pay gap.

PayScale notes, “when employees said they have a transparent pay process at their company, women were estimated to earn between $1 and $1.01 for every dollar earned by men – effectively erasing the gender pay gap.”'

... adds up to 100s of 1000s of $? So says the article. Methinks some ppl can't do math.

Working 50 yrs. 40 hrs/week and the diff is $48k. Not 100s of 1000s. In any case I hardly think a one cent diff is glaring evidence of rampant sexism.
