Belgium - Gender pay gap decreases, but is still substantial - June 30, 2016

The gender pay gap report 2016, produced by the Institute for equality between women and men and the Federal Department for employment, labour and social dialogue, reveals that in 2013 a woman earned on average 8% less (gross hourly wage) than a man.

Thus, only a slow evolution in the improvement of women wages takes place.
