Women managers earn less than male counterparts

The wage gap between women and men holding management positions has grown, according to a new report by the Swedish management organization Ledarna. The median salary that female managers earn is 2,000 kronor a month less than that of men who perform the same jobs.

"Employers are letting other factors than ability play a role in the salary process. There's no other explanation," says Ledarna's chairperson, Annika Elisa, to Swedish Radio News.

Of the approximately half-millon managers working in Sweden, 37 percent are women.
