WOMEN tend to have jobs that are worse paid, and even if they do hold the same positions as men, their salaries are 7 percent lower, according to the Profesia.sk job portal, which features an online survey on salaries on its Platy.sk website.

WOMEN tend to have jobs that are worse paid, and even if they do hold the same positions as men, their salaries are 7 percent lower, according to the Profesia.sk job portal, which features an online survey on salaries on its Platy.sk website.

The survey was conducted in 2012 with 100,000 people working in 500 different types of job positions, the TASR newswire wrote on March 8. It turns out that women earned an average of 21 percent less than men last year. This gap in salaries exists as soon as young people enter the job market at the age of 17-24. As time goes by, the difference widens before reaching its highest level in the 35-44 age range.
