For All Defence Aspirants Global Wages Report 2018

Nation Global Wage Report 2018

Recently, International Labour Organisation (ILO) Released The Global Wage Report 2018.

Key Highlights

Among High -Income Countries, Wage In Equally Is Lowest In Sweden And Highest In Chile. Among Low Income And Middle-Income Countries, South Africa And Namibia Have The Highest Inequality, Armenia And Mongolia The Lowest. Countries With The Lowest Levels Of Wage Inequality Are Found Among The High Income Group Whereas Countries With The Highest Levels Of Wage Inequality Are Found In The Low And Middle Income Groups.

Globally, The Rate Of Growth In Wages In 2017 Fell To Its Lowest Level Since 2008,But Workers In India Had The Highest Average Real Wage Growth In Southern Asia Of 5.5 % Over The Period 2008-17.

Wages In Developing Countries Are Increasing More Quickly Than Those In Higher-Income Countries. But The Gaps In Wages Are Wide And The Level Of Wages Is Still Not High Enough For People To Meet Their Basic Needs In Developing Countries.

All Emerging G20 Countries Except Mexico Experienced Significant Positive Growth In Average Real Wages Between 2008 And 2017.

Labour Productivity Has Increased More Rapidly Than Real Wages Due To Which The Share Of Labour Compensation In GDP In Many Countries Remains Substantially Below Those Of The Early 1990s.

Women Continue To Be Under -Represented In Traditionally Male-Occupied Categories. Within Similar Categories ,Even If Women’s Educational Attainments Are Just As Good Or Better Than Those Of Men In Similar Occupations ,Women Are Consistently Paid Below Men.

In High Income Countries ,The Gender Pay Gap Was Its Widest In Top-Salaried Positions .In Low And Middle -Income Countries, However ,The Gap Was Widest Among Lower Paid Workers.

Way Forward

State-Specific And Comparative Studies In Wages Are Needed Through Collaboration Between Government Agencies Academic Institutions And Expert Organisation.

Good Data Is Needed In Many Countries For Better Analysis Of Distribution Of Wages.

Educational Policies Targeting Enrolment Rates Among Girls May Contribute To Reducing The Gender Pay Gap In The Future.

Countries Should Also Took Into Possible Ways To Address The Undervaluing Of Women’s Work In Highly Feminized Occupations And Industries, Including By Raising Wages. Eliminating This Bias Is Not Only A Way To Narrow The Gender Pay Gap Directly, But Is Also A Condition To Reduce Occupational Segregation, For Example By Attracting More Men Into The Education And Health Sectors.

More Equitable Sharing Of Family Duties Between Women And Men, As Well As Adequate Childcare And Eldercare Services Would In Many Instances Lead To Women Making Different Occupational Choices.

An Appropriate Mix Of Policies In Any National Context Will Depend On That Particular Country’s Circumstances ,And That Robust Analytical Work Is Needed To Identify The Largest Contributory Factors- And Hence The Most Effective Remedies -In Different Country Contexts.

Equal Pay International Coalition(EPIC)
