Think that there really is equality in the work place? Think again. We have previously published statistics from the U.S but how do we fare locally?
Last October AMP/NATSEM released a new report that showed a 25-year-old woman with post-graduate qualifications would, over her lifetime, earn $2.49 million. The 25-year-old who had taken the same classes and finished the same degree would accumulate $3.78 million.
However, the 25- year-old woman whom had completed her postgraduate degree would still not earn as much as her male school leaver counterpart – he would earn $2.55 million.
Upset? Annoyed? Perhaps a little angry?
Unfortunately this is not unique to Australia.
