Rising wage inequality

WAGE inequality between men and women has increased since 2008, a new report on pay inequality in Ireland commissioned by publicpolicy.ie has found.

However, data over a longer period shows inequality remains lower now than it was prior to the current recession in 2006. The report, using data on almost 1.4m taxpayers between 2006 and 2010, finds median earnings declined by almost 7.5pc from 2008.
