Wage inequalities between women and men - An overview

30.05.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

This analysis provides an overview of wage inequalities between women and men. And it mentions that men earn 23.5% more than women. Nearly 11% of wage differentials between the sexes are unexplained and are "pure" discrimination. The higher the salary scale, the greater the gap between women and men, in part because women are much less numerous at the top of the scale.
