Gender Pay Gap: Women in Europe still work 59 days ‘for free’


16.2%: that's the size of the gender
pay gap, or the average difference between women and men's hourly earnings
across the EU, according to the latest figures released by the European
Commission. The figure has not moved an inch in the space of a year.

According
to a report published by the European Commission, the pay gap between women and
men is still a reality in all EU countries and it shows that the biggest
problem in fighting the EU pay gap is the practical application of equal pay
rules and the lack of legal action brought by women to national courts.
Vice-President Reding said: "The principle of equal pay for equal work is
written in the EU Treaties since 1957. It is high time that it becomes a
reality in the workplace as well."
