Mothers who leave work to raise children often sacrifice more than the pay for their time off as when they come back their wages reflect lost raises, researchers said. Researchers from New York University in the US examined data from a survey that tracked 4,658 women from 1976, when they were 14- to 21-year-olds, to 2010, when they were largely past their child rearing years at ages 45 to 52.“In the case of highly skilled white women with high wages, what is striking is that they have the highest penalties despite the fact that they have the most continuous work experience of any group of women, which, other things being equal, would reduce their penalties,” said Paula England, professor at New York University.

She found that highly skilled, highly paid white women lose an average of 10 per cent in their wage per child. However, those with lower skills and/or lower wages lose significantly less, between four and seven per cent of their wage per child.
