Gender Pay Gap: Example of Recent Graduates
8
2019
This paper analysis gender pay gap among recent university graduates from Moscow. We studied, which factors affect the difference in wages between men and women. It was found, that even for Moscow recent graduates, significant gender wage gap exists. Several main factors are responsible for this. One of them is the fact, that both, men and women tend to work during their university studies, however, this increases average difference in wages. At the same time, the number of hours spent studying decreases gender pay gap, therefore, it could be assumed, that for women it is more useful to study instead of working during their time at university. Another responsible factor is that, even at the young age, men tend to work more hours than women and, as a result, have higher wages. At the same time, paper shows, that choice of the university major influences the gender pay gap.
