Regardless of education, working women, they earn less than men. On average they receive 70.5 cents for every dollar earned by men. The report states: "The wage gap between them and their male counterparts has actually grown over the past 10 years.
Among the measures recommendeD by the CLC are changes
* to the Employment Insurance that will enable them to have greater access to EI benfits
* to employment standards so that full-time hours and part-time hours get paid the same when the same work is done:
* to raise the minimum wage to at least $10 an hour.
