The wage gap between men and women in the public sector is greater than that of the private sector, according to data presented by Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel on Sunday during the weekly cabinet meeting.

According to the Social Equality minister, men in the private sector earn 32% more than women, while in the public sector they earn some 36% more – a figure that has increased since last year.

In addition, the findings indicated that 42.4% of women received government income supplements, compared to only 29.4% of men.
