DRIVING THE RESET
According to the latest Stats SA’s Inequality Trends in SA Report, women earn on average 30% less than men in the same jobs. What is even more alarming is the revelation in the ILO Global Wage report’s 2018/19 statistics that South Africa has the highest wage inequality overall.
The consequences of this gap affects women throughout their lives. They cannot access the same loans, save and invest like their male counterparts in the same job. However the gender wage gap will not close anytime soon without concerted efforts. Efforts to close the wage gap must address the varying drivers of it as well as the multitude of biases that hold women and their families back
