German women have to contend with the biggest gender gaps in wages and career opportunities in Europe, according to a new study by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
The report found that women in full-time jobs earn an average of 21.6 percent less than their male colleagues. This is significantly more than the average gender wage gap of the 34 industrialized countries that make up the OECD, which is 16 percent.
Of OECD countries, only Japan and Korea have a bigger average wage gap.
