Czech women on average earn almost a quarter less than men, according to the results of a survey released by management recruitment company Anderson Willinger. It found that Czech women’s average wages were 23.6 percent lower. This is slightly better than the worst placed country – Austria – where the difference was 25.5 percent. The company said the difference was in part caused by the fact that in some countries wage differences between men and women are clearly defined as illegal. Also women tend to switch jobs less than men and often prefer that their working day does not exceed eight hours, it added.
