In today’s Herald Sun there was an article by Jessica Marszalek,the ‘Pay gap just gets bigger.’
According to the ABS it seems that the gender pay gap in Australia is not closing in – rather it is expanding considerably, across all industries. Healthcare has seen the biggest pay gap of $600 amongst those classed as professionals.
The average working full time male in Australia now receives $1678 per week while the average women receives $1307.
There are various reasons as to why this pay gap exists – from choice of occupation, to gender bias, through to women engaging in less negotiation discussions than men. Men initiate salary discussion 4 times more than women. Certainly food for thought.
