Netherlands - Gender pay gap still significant - May 31, 2016

Women in the Netherlands still earn an average of 5 percent less than their male colleagues, according to a study done by foundation Loonwijzer and job site Monsterboard. While this is an improvement - in 2014 men earned 5.8 percent more - there are some sectors where the wage gap is still significant. In healthcare and education, for example, men earn an average of 15 percent more than their female colleagues.
