Yle surveyed: this is where women’s euro is 1.11 euro

According to Yle women’s euro is 1.11 for those in government posts.

“WOMEN leaders and highest officials working for the state receive better wages than their male colleagues on average.

The euro of female executives working for the state is 1.11 euro when compared to male leaders, even though women’s overall earnings amount to only 85 per cent of men’s wages.

In other government tasks, in municipal and private sectors women’s wages are lower than men’s. The information is based on a survey of the Confederation of Unions for Academic Professionals in Finland Akava’s information on member earnings.

‘The government sector has been exemplary in this and taken an objective of placing women in the highest positions,’ estimates expert on working life at Akava Tarja Arkio to Yle.”
