The website Fizetesek.hu has investigated how the gender pay gap has changed during recent years. The results show that women receive 21% less money than men for the same amount of work, and in higher positions the difference is even greater. In 2008 the gap was 17.5% but after a small improvement in 2009 it began growing and in 2012 reached 20%. Since then it has grown even more. It means that women would need to work about two months for free to receive equal wages.
