"From Ciudadanos we think that this gap can only be corrected with strong actions by all agents, including companies and public administrations," Padin said, explaining that "we hope that this measure will be extended to the rest of the municipalities of the Region. of Murcia and between all of us contribute to put an end to this unjustifiable and humiliating salary difference ".

The orange training emphasizes the importance of quantifying the gap in an objective manner, so that for the bidder the application of the weighting criteria is made transparent due to these social considerations, for which purpose it will propose to use the formula established by Eurostat for the calculation of the salary gap at European level.

Citizens recalled that according to the latest data from FEDEA, women earn 12.7% less per hour than men doing the same job as them.
