Equal Pay For All

There are several groups that campaign for equal pay for all. These include The Equal Pay Day Alliance, the Equal Pay Today Organistion, the Australian Services Union and more. Disparity in pay There has always been a difference in pay between men and women. The February 2018 gender pay gap statistics* show some poor figures. Especially considering Australia’s “Fair Go” attitude. Full time average weekly earnings of women is $1409 Full time average weekly earnings of men is $1662.70 Thats an average difference of 15.3% Looking at the states and territories the lowest gender pay gap is in South Australia while the highest gap is in Western Australia at a whopping 22.5%. The gender pay gap by industry statistic shows 6.8% in Public Administration and Safety with the highest gap being in Financial an Insurance Services at 26.1% These figures are ridiculous when you consider that the male and female members of the Australian workforce by an large do an equally good job across all the industries and services we have. Today is Equal Pay in Day America, an ally that has the same problem. Share this around to show employers that we have had enough. Sell Your Art   *Source Workplace Gender Equality Agency
