Women’s Electoral Lobby state ‘Working Women are still in the Red’.

Women working full time, on average, get only 82% of men’s earnings and the gap is increasing.  This year, women will have to work 2 months more to earn the same as their male equivalent.

Equal pay for equal work is still a dream, even where women have similar jobs to men and equal qualifications.  Despite legislation in support of equal pay at work, women still do most of the undervalued jobs.

Women’s Electoral Lobby (www.wel.org.au) announce that women demand:

  • A rise in the minimum wage
  • Equal pay for equal work, including
  • Revaluing the skills and responsibilities of jobs traditionally undertaken by women, so that thier pay rates match those offered to equivalent male dominated jobs.
