Closing The Gap On Gender Wage Difference

This petition made change with 43 supporters!

Currently, Australia’s national gender pay gap is 15.3%. It has hovered between 15% and 19% for the past two decades.

The average weekly ordinary time earnings of women working full-time were $1,325.10 per week,
compared to men who earned an average weekly wage of $1,602.80 per week, making women’s average
earnings $277.70 per week less than men.

The gender pay gap is the difference between women’s and men’s average weekly full-time equivalent earnings, expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings. It is a measure of women’s overall position in the paid workforce. The gender pay gap is influenced by a number of factors, including:

- discrimination and bias in hiring and pay decisions 

- women and men working in different industries and different jobs, with female-dominated industries and jobs attracting lower wages

- women’s disproportionate share of unpaid caring and domestic work 

- And many more

Gender pay gaps are an internationally established measure of women’s position in economy.
