The pay disparity between men and women in NSW shrank more than in any state last year, helping to reduce the Australia-wide gender pay gap to the narrowest it’s been in over a decade.
The average weekly base salary of women working full-time was 15.3 per cent less than the average weekly base salary of male full-timers in November 2017, analysis of Bureau of Statistics data by the federal Workplace Gender Equity Agency (WGEA) shows.
