Jobswype European comparison 2016-2017: Gender Pay Gap is still pronounced for European employees
On the occasion of the international women's day, the job search engine Jobswype polled its users de novo. A disappointing result for all the people who thought that equality at work should be given in 2017. Almost two thirds of European female employees earn less money than their male colleagues, where qualifications are equivalent. These were the findings of the poll conducted in February by the job search engine Jobswype. Even though the United Kingdom is the country where with 55 % the highest percentage of people answered “yes” to the question if women and men are being paid equally but still there is enough place for improvement.

Jobswype survey in February 2017: European workforce needs a second job to provide living
Alarmingly high scores beyond the 70 percent mark are to be seen in all polled countries. This shows the survey of the Europe wide organized job search engine Jobswype. Gender role, part time employment as well as rising cost of living can be the reason for pursuing more than one employment. Also in the UK and in Ireland between 84 to 86 % answered “Yes” to the question regarding a second job.

Change of profession no rarity in european countries
Reasons for change of profession varied – leader is Hunagry
Vienna, 1/23/2017: While a couple of years ago it would have been quite difficult to practice another profession than the one learned or studies for, it is not a rarity anymore today. This shows a recent poll of the job search engine Jobswype, active in Europe. Strikingly many profession changers within the last 5 years are to be found in Hungary, followed by the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The United Kingdom is midrange with 54 % of profession changers.
