Survey finds that Slovak men earn 11 percent more than women in the same jobs

Men earn 11 percent more on average than their female counterparts in the same jobs, the TASR newswire was told on March 7 by Marcela Glevická of Profesia, a jobs portal which conducted the survey on salary differences between the two genders. The survey found that for some positions women earn as much as a third less than men. The greatest income differences were seen in the age 35-44 category where men earned on average 17 percent more. According to the analysis, the differences to some extent can be tied to the fact that women at this age are often returning back to the workforce from maternity leave – periods during which their salary did not change.
