Czech Republic -Gender pay gap one of the largest in EU -November 04, 2015

The gender pay gap in the Czech Republic is the third largest in the EU. Women earn on average 22% less than men do, which is substantially higher than the 16% EU average. Commissioner Jourova pointed towards discrimination, occupational segregation and family responsibilities as causes of the large gap. The pay gap is largest for highly educated women.
