Report Confirms How Much Less Than Men Women Get Paid
Women on average are still earning nearly $27,000 a year less than men despite making up half of the workforce.
"The data confirms gender pay gaps in favour of men in every industry and the under-representation of women in management and leadership roles," Workplace Gender Equality Agency director Libby Lyons said.
The latest gender equality scorecard from the WGEA to be released in Canberra on Wednesday also shows some improvement in key indicators, including greater movement of women into management roles.
