Salaries in Finland

April 1st, 2011 by Pelle Billing

Here are some salary statistics from Finland, that I thought you may find interesting.

This is a new way of looking at gender and salary – as far as I can tell – but since I don’t speak Finnish I cannot read the whole report.

    If you use the “return”-option in the page, you can reach the verification in Sweden. Here it is:
    and in swedish
    Klick and be astonished (normal thinking people are not astonished, sorry)

    My book is not translated to other languages, because every country has it’s own pecualirities in salaries, but the main principle is the same, men and women get equal salary per working hour, if we make the comparison by ILO 100-principle “equal salary from equal work”.

    Great to see the truth coming out, and the family wage is a combined wage, even if the woman is spending 20% less time in the work place on the strength of the family wage, she is still legally receiving and controlling at least 50% of the families income.
