Equal Pay Is A Difficult Goal

There is no longer any area of management in which women have not proven at least their equality with colleagues but are not paid equally for the same work. In Slovenia, this gap is about 8%

Throughout human history, women have never been banned from working. But what they have been denied is the right to decide and the right to a reward appropriate to their work. In the last ten years, there have been an ever greater number of women in a growing number of companies and institutions whose efficiency and effectiveness exceed that of their male colleagues. The share of women employed in the world economy is estimated at over 45 percent, and managers in some multinationals occupy up to 60 percent of important positions.

In the last ten years, a growing number of women who manage companies and institutions significantly surpass their male colleagues in their efficiency and effectiveness.

There is no longer any area of leadership in which women have not proven at least their equality with their colleagues. However, despite the Treaty of Rome on equal pay for equal work, already signed in 1957, even the practice of the developed world still shows a completely different picture. There are still differences in earnings. In EU countries for example, women are paid on average 14% (20% in Austria and 8% in Slovenia) less than their male counterparts for regular work, not to mention the size of bonuses.
