ICYMI: Our big report from mid-December on gender, wages and the workplace finds that millennial women’s wages are nearly on par with their male counterparts — but that may change in years to come.

We’re pretty close to parity between men and women for young adults, but it’s not because incomes are rising for both men and women. It’s because men are getting paid roughly $4 less per hour than they were in 1980, based on 2012 dollars. It’s good to see the gender gap closing, either way.

By 2020, estimates say, the number of unemployed men vs. unemployed women could become even more pronounced.
