OECD study: Pensioners get only half

According to OECD, men in Germany are almost twice as high Rentenwie women. In no or OECD country, gap between Rentnerinnenund pensioners was so high, Organization shared with presentation of a study ZurGeschlechtergerechtigkeit. As a result, men from 65 years of age receive 45.7 per cent more in pensions, pensions and private pensions than equal old women.

In Nerlands (42.04 percent) and Luxembourg (39.35 percent), differences between men and women were also clear. In contrast, situation in Estonia is different: women in Baltic country at time of Erhebung2014 only had a good three percent less than men. In Slovakia, too, derUnterschied was relatively low at 7.2 percent. According to OECD, differences mainly reflect role distributions of past decades. For example, women of older generations would have had children and worked shorter.

The big difference in German pensions, however, is also result of unequal incomes of men and women. Dersogenannte gender pay gap is in Germany according to study at 17, 1Prozent. For every euro a man earns in Germany, EineFrau gets just under 83 cents.

Still a great income difference in Germany

Anor reason for great Einkommensunterschiedsieht is that OECD is still in childcare. Although Germany to only ten countries, fars financially support use of parental leave. The role of fars in child care Müssedennoch be expanded. In Germany, for example, 70 percent, and damitfast ten percent more than OECD cut, would work. More than a third (37Prozent) worked only part-time, many of m mors. That was twelve percent more than average of all OECD countries.
