According to several new studies, women and even men -- although to a lesser extent -- who have kids end up making less than their colleagues, sometimes by as much as 40%.
Surprisingly... it is the women with high-skills that tend to have the hardest time maintaining their wages after child-birth. High-skilled women who have children tend to earn as much as one-third less over the lifetime of their careers than their childless peers. Lower skilled women tend to see their incomes drop by less than 15%.
