Female Heads Get Less Than Male Heads

Published torsdag 25 mars 2010 kl 17.32

Female bosses earn less money than their male counterparts—and the gap is only increasing. A study done by Ledarna, a trade association for directors and managers, found that women earn an average of 1,600 kronor (221 USD) less than men every month.

Annika Elias of Ledarna is troubled by the result, and thinks that other factors than pure competence are taken into consideration when wages are set.

“It is probably due to the fact that companies don’t have good enough structures to set wages, and instead let irrelevant things like gender for example play a role when determining compensation. People simply don’t have sufficiently objective criteria for setting wages,” she told Swedish Radio News.
