Australian women aren’t being paid the wage they deserve – how do they fix this?

    Finally an article saying what I've been saying for months. The pay gap has nothing to do with gender. Most employees are covered by a Modern Award or Enterprise agreement that remunerate people on experience and classification level contained within them. The rest are on Common Law contracts that they negotiate themselves. Key is "negotiate". There are mechanisms in legislation that women can access should they feel they are being discriminated against because of their sex, so perhaps more time should be spent up-skilling as opposed to blaming everyone else for your short comings.
