{This is Life} Gender pay gaps worse in rural areas

This is something that really needs to be addressed.

Why don’t people that do the SAME job get paid the SAME?

It just doesn’t make sense and I am really struggling trying to confidently raise three daughters into a world where they are unlikely to be recognised in the same manner in the professional arena as their male cousin.

It. Just. Doesn’t. Add. Up.

This article in the Central Western Daily shows that it is even worse than that, in fact women in rural areas have an even bigger pay divide than their city counterparts. pay gap

It is unacceptable and we all have to start making changes because otherwise all the little girls will grow up thinking they aren’t as valuable and that is not okay.

Make sure you take a stand and encourage employers to treat equal work equally.
