Gender wage gap in Nordic countries highest in Iceland

The gender-based wage gap is highest in Iceland, or 28 percent, of all the Nordic countries, according to a joint Nordic study. These findings were introduced at a symposium held yesterday by the Icelandic Ministry of Social Services and the Centre for Gender Equality. Among recommended measures for closing the gap is the abolition of wage confidentiality, which is common in the private sector in Iceland. Fréttabladid has this report on its front page today.
