Men earn at least 22% more than women in Argentina

In relation to revenue, however, they highlighted that in the third quarter of 2022, men earned 24.6 percent more personal income and 22.8 percent more for main occupation than women.

In turn, in the field of informality, a sector of large proportions in the country, the income gap exceeds 34 percent between men and women.

Inequality in income also occurs in a context of a general increase in economic activity as well as a drop in unemployment, which the president Alberto Ferandez stood out in his speech at the inauguration of ordinary sessions in the National Congress.

The so-called “economic recovery” thus finds women with an activity rate that CEPA described as “very high”. In the third quarter of 2022, it was 51.1% and, “although the gap with men continues to be high (19.3 pp), it is a lower level than the average of the last 7 years,” they remarked.

For its part, the general unemployment rate registers two consecutive years of recovery, reaching values ​​2.6 points lower than in 2019, and the gap between men and women remained at levels similar to 2021, reaching 1.3 points .

This scheme of gender inequality between men and women ensures that it affects the time that each sector dedicates to so-called unpaid work.

“The distribution of care work has a direct impact on asymmetries: women dedicate, on average, almost 3 hours more than men to unpaid work. This inequality is deepened in households with Unsatisfied Basic Needs,” they pointed out.
