Wage gap: Romanian women earn 9.10 pct less than men

Newsroom 20/10/2016 | 15:56

Romanian women are paid 9.10 percent less than men, meaning that from November 27 until the end of the year the women are not paid for their work, according to a research of the company Expert Market.

„When we examine gender pay disparity across Europe, it can be difficult to actually imagine how this difference in pay is reflected in everyday life. Our findings highlight the amount of money women across Europe are losing out on in comparison to their male peers. It is disappointing to see that in many European countries, women are essentially working for free for two or more months,” says Michael Horrocks from Expert Market.

The research reveals that on average women in Europe earn 16.68 percent less annually than men, which is the equivalent of working for free for nearly two months of the year.

In Bosnia, the gap between the pay of men and women is so big that from July 15th women are paid with a gap of 46 percent than men.This means that Bosnian women stop getting paid the earliest across the continent.

The situation is better in Romania, although women still effectively stop earning from November 27th onwards.

Slovenia is the country with the lowest gender pay gap, with women earning only 3.2 percent less annually than men. This means that Slovenian women effectively stop getting paid on December 18th, the latest date across Europe.
