Eurostat: Romania registers lowest pay gap between men and women in management positions

In each European Union member state, male managers in 2014 were paid more than women in management positions, but the lowest pay gap was registered in Romania, as data of the European Statistics Office (Eurostat) shows, according to Agerpres.

2017-04-03 00:32:38 - From the Print Edition

The Eurostat statistics, released before International Women' Day, show that the lowest pay gap between men and women in management positions is registered in Romania (five per cent), Slovenia (12.4 per cent), Belgium (13.6 per cent) and Bulgaria (15 per cent). On the opposite side, a female manager receives about a third less than her male counterpart in Hungary (33.7 per cent), Italy (33.5 per cent), The Czech Republic (29.7 per cent), and almost a quarter less in Slovakia (28.3 per cent), Poland (27.7 per cent), Austria (26.9 per cent), Germany (26.8 per cent), Portugal (25.9 per cent), Estonia (25.6 per cent) and the UK (25.1 per cent).

The highest percentage of women in management positions was in Latvia, the only EU member state where female managers hold the majority (53 per cent). Next come Bulgaria and Poland (both with 44 per cent), Ireland (43 per cent), Estonia (42 per cent), Lithuania, Hungary and Romania (all with 41 per cent), France and Sweden (both with 40 per cent). In exchange, women represent less than a quarter of the managers in Germany, Italy and Cyprus (all with 22 per cent), Belgium and Austria (both with 23 per cent) and Luxembourg (24 per cent).

In the EU, almost 7.3 million persons hold management positions in enterprises with ten or above employees; 65 per cent of them are men (4.7 million) and 35 per cent are women (2.6 million). Moreover, the women in management positions in the EU are paid on average 23.4 per cent less than male managers.
