Gender wage gap explained in one post. All numbers from ABS 2019. DVAA will continue to fact check all claims made in the name of propaganda.
Male average work hours: 40.8
Female weekly earnings: $1433.60
Male weekly earnings: $1678.40
Overtime in Australia begins at 38 hours, and is paid at 1.5x – 2x hourly rate. We will split the difference and use 1.75x.
Female average overtime worked = 0
Male average overtime worked = 2.8 hours (40.8 – 38).
2.8 hours paid at 1.75x rate equates to 4.9 hours worked. Including overtime men work equivalent of 42.9 hours per week (38 + 4.9)
Thus female hourly rate = $1433.60 / 36.9 hours = $38.85 per hour.
Male hourly rate = $1678.40 / 42.9 hours = $39.1 per hour.
$38.85 vs $39.1 per hour.
There is no gender wage gap. There is a gender work hours gap. Lets end the propaganda.
