The pay gap between men and women is not getting any smaller. A report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives finds the average working woman in Ontario earns 70 cents for every dollar a man pulls in. There’s one exception, at the bottom 10 per cent of the pay ladder, where women actually earn $190 more than men. However, as you climb each rung of the ladder, as incomes rise, the disparity shifts. In the middle, women earn an average $9000 a year – or 27 per cent – less than men. At the top of the ladder – the top ten per cent – the gap is more like $64000 or 37 per cent. The Ontario Equal Pay Coalition wants Queen’s Park to close the gap, across all pay scales, by 2025.
