Mihajlovic: Gender pay gap up to 16 percent in Serbia Izvor: N1

Outgoing Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinator of the Serbian government Gender Equality Body Zorana Mihajlovic said on Friday that the pay gap between men and women in Serbia is between 11 and 16 percent on average in favor of men, her cabinet said in a press release.

It added that the European average is 16.3 percent and global average is 23 percent.  

Speaking on the first International Equal Pay Day, Mihajlovic recalled that women in Serbia are doubly engaged on unpaid household chores and taking care of family members. “We completed the first economic analysis of unpaid jobs and got data showing that if economic value was assigned to those jobs, women would be earning 546 Euro for them,” she is quoted as saying.  

Mihajlovic said that the coronavirus pandemic shed light on the burden women accept – from caring for their homes to working on less paid jobs such as the food and textile industries, social services and health care with very few of them in the highest paying sectors such as the IT industry.
