Trade unions are calling attention to the large gender pay gap through the Women’s Last Work Day campaign. While the country has been praised for its gender equality, the pay gap remains at 17% and even 24% among white collar workers. The gender pay gap is the difference between the average salary of men and that of women. Arguing that women work a large part of the year for free because they only receive a proportion of the average male wage, the campaign marks the day that women should stop working.
