    (ANSA) – BRUSSELS, APRIL 11 – Young women between the ages of 25 and 29 have an uncorrected pay gap of 7.2% at the start of their careers in the EU labor market.

    It is about half of the pay gap that emerges by evaluating all workers, thus highlighting greater gender wage inequalities among older workers.

    This is what emerges from the quarterly review on employment and social developments in Europe (ESDE) of the EU Commission, with a specific focus on the pay gap among young people, on the occasion of the European Year of Youth. wages among young women and men are difficult to explain on the basis of the available data and the situation varies considerably from country to country. Furthermore, some differences in worker characteristics represent substantial wage differences, but they operate in different directions. Young men tend to earn more because they work in higher-paying businesses, while young women tend to earn higher wages because they are better educated.

    Reducing the gender pay gap is a priority in the Commission’s strategy for gender equality 2020-2025, with a proposal for a directive on equal pay for equal work between men and women through transparency mechanisms. The proposal is currently being examined by the European Parliament and the Council. (HANDLE).
