GENDER PAY INEQUALITY STARTS AT HOME. PARENTS PAY BOYS TWICE AS MUCH ALLOWANCE AS GIRLS

USA Today

Before girls even get a chance to move into the working world, where they will earn 79 cents for every $1 men earn (and less if she’s a woman of color), they’re already being stiffed by their parents.

Data analyzed by BusyKid.com found that parents pay boys twice as much for doing chores per week.

Boys take home an average weekly allowance of $13.80 for their chores.

Girls? Just $6.71.
