"Not in my house"
2095 is the year in which the salary gap between women and men will finally be overcome. Such an assessment of the World Economic Forum, In Germany, even with the same qualifications and jobs, women still earn 7 percent less than men today. Excluding the adjustment factors, the gender pay gap is even at 22 percent. However, many employees still do not believe in the pay gap, at least not in their employer: 73 percent of Germans assume that women and men in their workplace receive the same remuneration for the same job.
This is shown by the results of Glassdoor's first Global Gender Pay Gap Survey, in which more than 8.000 workers in Germany and six other western industrialized nations (France, United Kingdom, Canada, Netherlands, USA and Switzerland) were interviewed about their attitudes and perceptions on the topic ,
Gender Pay Gap influences the behavior of men and women
Employees across borders are in agreement that women and men receive the same pay for the same work should, In Germany, 90 percent of respondents. The proportion is higher only in the US (93 percent).
And unequal pay not only causes displeasure in the workplace, but can also lead to job seekers not even apply for a job. 3 of 5 German employees stated that they did not apply to a company where they suspected a gender pay gap. And that's not just true for women: while 69 preferred to survey one percent of the women surveyed Casting 53 percent of men would also refrain from applying to an employer with a lack of gender pay equity.
Respondents see government in duty
To tackle the problem of the gender pay gap, there are different starting points. Federal Minister Manuela Schwesig has been advocating for a long time legal regulation for more wage inequality. Initiatives such as the Equal Pay Day also point out that there is a significant salary gap. This year, the day falls on the 19. March, which symbolizes the time by which women would work free of charge, provided that they should henceforth earn the same as men.
Laws for greater wage inequality, a reorganization of company policy and generally more transparency on salary are, according to the study, transnationally one of the most important measures against the unequal pay of women and men. In Germany, 41 percent of employees, whose employers believe they have a wage gap, are finding that the government should force employers to pay equally the same amount of experience and work. While 26 per cent advocate a new company policy on salary and remuneration, 15 percent want a greater internal salary transparency.
