The report looked at two key ways to measure progression – wage growth, and movement up a vertical occupational scale. In both cases the gender gap is minimal on labour market entry and widens significantly from the late 20s and early 30s as women’s progression plateaus. Gender differences in part-time work are important explanations for these differences, but a substantial amount remains unexplained.
