Women, still discriminated on the labour market

Despite being better prepared than men, women earn less, don’t get to leading positions very often, but form the bulk of the personnel working in the administration sector, finds out a survey made by the National Statistics Institute (INS), quoted by Realitatea.net.

According to INS, 60 pc of university graduates across the EU are women, but their chance to hold an administrative job is three times smaller than that of their male counterparts.

The difference is also present in terms of salaries. Women are paid 15 pc less than men, though they work as much as them. “Men in leading positions are very vain and usually don’t allow women to reach the top. I believe that everybody should be equal; as long as we are born equal, we should have the same rights. Men earn higher salaries, although their work is perhaps equivalent to that of women, which I don’t find normal,” said a woman quoted by the survey.
