Pay Gap

According to Eurostat the gender pay gap (difference between average gross hourly earnings of male and female employees as a percentage of male gross earnings) is 16 %. The gender pay gap increases with age, showing the impact of career interruptions women experience during their working life, particularly due to maternity (the so-called motherhood pay gap).

Moreover, the situation worsens when women retire as their pension is - as a consequence of gender pay gap and more precarious working conditions - about 40% less.
