Inside V4

In “Inside V4” we follow major developments in politics and the economies of the V4 countries and their intra-Visegrad cooperation; we explore the V4’s take on its ethnic and religious diversity, socio-economic inequality, the independence of the media, corruption and transparency of public finances and how welcoming has it been to refugees and migrants.

In all V4 countries we can see quite significant difference betweeen monthly earning of women and men. The regional average for average earnings is 18.7%. With the exception of Poland the gap in average earnings is higher than in the case of median earnings. The segregation of labour market plays its role here – the average earnings are increased by men employed in well-paid sectors (horizontal segregation) or on top positions (vertical segregation). The biggest gap in average salaries is in Slovakia and the Czech Republic – in both cases over 20% followed by Poland with 17% and the smallest gap is in Hungary – only 13%. For median data for only 3 countries are avaiable and the situation is quite different. The biggest gap is in Poland (22%) followed by Slovakia (17%) and the smallest in the Czech Republic.
