Top education is not enough: tyrolean women still receive lower wages than their male counterparts
Despite higher levels of education and a growing number of women entering the workforce, wage inequality between men and women in Tyrol persists. According to a recent study by the Austrian Institute of Economic Research, women in comparable positions still receive about 20 percent less pay than their male counterparts.
Higher education levels have not helped women in Tyrol close the wage gap. On the contrary, women with top education often have bigger salary disparities than women with average education. This phenomenon is also known as the “Gender Pay Gap in the Top” Designates.
