"Gender gap in the Spanish labour market and its evolution through the life cycle". In this article Sara de la Rica analyses the gender gap.
The data (the sample are highly educated workers and full-time equivalents) explains:
- The gender gap increases with age specially until 30-34 years. From 15% in the hourly wages in 20-24 years old to 20% in 30-34 years old. After that, the gender gap is mainly constant.
- There is a lack of promotion in women at the age 30-34. The type of data can't explain if this is voluntary or a firm-decision.
- Women receive less in one of the two components of the salary: the variable part like bonus.
