Bamberry: Pay gap increase
(Radio National (Sydney), 2 March 2010)
In 50 years, the pay gap between men and women has narrowed slowly. The union movement has issued a report showing that the pay gap is increasing, despite more women than men graduating university.
The report has found fewer than 2% of ASX200 companies have female CEOs. Women earn $2,000 per year less than men when they start work.
Dr Larissa Bamberry of the School of Management at RMIT says the issue is that traditionally female dominated occupations tend to be under valued.
