Men over 40 with university education best paid

THE STEREOTYPE of the best-paid Slovak citizen is a male over 40 with university education and a permanent residence in Bratislava, recent statistical data suggests.

According to daily SME, more than 60 percent of the Slovak population do not meet any of these criteria and are being paid less than the world's average salary.

The Statistics Office warned that, recently, the gap between the way woman and men are paid has widened. The average salary of males reached Sk16,899 (€408.77), while females are being paid an average of Sk12,125 (€293.29). Women are earning only 71.7 percent of men's wages.

The average gross monthly wage in Slovakia has reached Sk14,597 (€353.09), while the cost of labour, consisting of the gross wage plus social expenditures paid by an employer, averaged Sk21,039 (€508.92) per worker.
