China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - World - AUS­TRALIA AFP— AP— XIN­HUA

Aus­tralian com­pa­nies with more than 1,000 em­ploy­ees will be forced to dis­close how much they pay women com­pared to men un­der a plan an­nounced by op­po­si­tion law­mak­ers. Tanya Plibersek, deputy leader of the Aus­tralian La­bor Party, made the an­nounce­ment on Sun­day, say­ing that the gen­der pay gap is “stub­bornly high”. Aus­tralian women in full-time jobs earn 15 per­cent less than men on av­er­age.
