Today, the 17th of March, marks gender Equal Pay Day in Germany.Despite the fact that we are all dealing with the uncertainties of Corona Virus right now, it is still important to be reminded of the gender pay gap in many countries. In Germany, this stands at 21%.The image shows EU statistics from Eurostat. Today marks the day that women start to get paid equally for their work in 2020.
