The latest report on equality of women and men published by the Commission on 27th of February shows that women still earn less than men even when employed in the same position and with the same qualification. Some countries have managed to decrease this gap whereas in others this inequality is even increasing.
Ernest Urtasun, Co-spokesperson of FYEG, says: “The average European woman still earns 15 % less than her male colleagues. This inequality is in no way acceptable and has to stop immediately.”
