Gender pay gap: a slightly different view
There are always discussions about the gender pay gap. 21% is the unadjusted pay gap between men and women in Germany. The difference is partly due to the fact that women are more likely to work part-time and have lower paid jobs. Nevertheless, the adjusted salary difference in Germany is still 6%. The really frightening thing is that these values have been almost constant since 2002. And the lack of equality is not only reflected in different salaries.
An example? At the current rate of change, it will take about 4 decades to achieve a balanced ratio between men and women in German executive boards.
Our sad prognosis for the future: we can probably continue to use this text with slight variations in the coming years, because hardly anything is changing in the German economy regarding gender equality.
