FINNISH STATE BROADCASTER YLE: ”SHOCK REPORT: PAY GAP BETWEEN IMMIGRANT MALES AND FEMALES”…….

A total useless article……

It would actually mean something if it was describing pay differences between men and women working IN THE SAME POSITIONS, but it’s describing differences of pay in general. Idiots.

Of course there’s differences in pay, when men and women are allowed to pursue work according to their own preferences, men gravitate to work (in the aggregate) that generates more income compared to that of women. Totally useless article, and a thick-as-a-brick news organization,

Report: Huge gender pay gap among migrants

A new report shows that employment among immigrants has improved in recent years—but that female migrants are still paid a lot less than men with a foreign background.

Employment among immigrants has improved since the 1990s, according to a new report from Pellervo Economic Research.

Researchers followed people some 58,000 foreign citizens who moved to Finland in 1995, 1996, 2000, 2001, 2005 and 2006. They tracked their progress in working life either until 2013 or until the individual left Finland.

They found that those who moved to Finland in the mid-90s had accumulated an average of just one year’s employment during their first four years in the country. Those who came a decade later had more than double that amount of working time in their first four years.

NOTE: Upon moving to Finland 29 yrs ago, within a year I was earning more than my Finnish wife due to our choice in professions.
