The pay gap between men and women only widens with age. Payscale collects data on salaries and compares it to the Labor Department and other sources to make sure their information is accurate. A new chart created by PayScale highlights average salaries compared with gender and age, which follows salaries for college-educated men and women. The pay gap is evident in entry-level jobs, with men earning around $40,800 and women earning $31,900.

Men continue receiving raises until around age 48, with average annual pay of $95,000.
