Poll: Czech men earn 13 percent more than women

Czech men earn on average 13 percent higher salaries than women in the same positions, according to a poll by the website platy.cz released on Wednesday. The poll also found that differences between men’s and women’s salaries increase with age; in the age group of 17 to 24 year olds, men make 11 percent more than women while the difference is nearly 20 percent in the age group between 35 and 44-year-olds. The gap between men’s and women’s salaries in the Czech Republic has been criticized by a number of NGOs; last year a report by the OECD said the gap was wider than in most developed countries.
