Women earn more than men in Central America

Friday, December 9, 2011

Central America has reversed the traditional gap between wages of men and women. Now, women are earning more than 3 percent on average than men.

A World Bank study shows that women also have higher educational levels than men in the region.

Renos Vakis, author of the study, said that a decade ago, men’s wages were 15 percent more than those of women. “Now that has all changed. Women are the ones who earn more.”
