According to a comprehensive new study, eight years after graduating with university bachelor degrees in 2005, males were earning $27,300 more on average than females who graduated with the same degrees.
Among college graduates, the earnings gap between women and men was almost as large, according to the analysis conducted by the Education Policy Research Initiative, a national research organizations based at the University of Ottawa.
The results also debunk the myth that some university programs have no real-world value and prepare students for little more than low paying jobs such as baristas.
