Male-female income gap unchanged

The difference in income between men and women in the Netherlands remains unchanged since 2003, the national statistics office CBS said on Wednesday.

In 2007, women earned 56% of the average male salary. Men earned an average €37,000 while women earned €20,000, the CBS says.
The difference is largely because more women work part-time, the CBS said. Women also tend to earn less than men.
