About

The Twenty Percent

A financial journalist, Katie created The Twenty Percent to help young people like herself. Financial education is practically non-existent, but now more than ever, it is important for us to take control of our finances.

The idea for the name came from the government’s furlough scheme, where many people are currently missing 20 percent of their income. It is also a nod to the gender pay gap – in the US women on average earn just 79 cents to the dollar.
