Abstract

Die Entlohnung von Frauen in abhängigen Beschäftigungen blieb in Deutschland auch im Jahr 2006 deutlich hinter der der Männer zurück. Für den Durchschnitt der Vollzeitbeschäftigen zeigt sich beim Bruttomonatsverdienst eine Lücke von 18 Prozent. Schätzungen unter Berücksichtigung von Strukturmerkmalen wie Bildung, Berufserfahrung oder Kinderzahl zeigen, dass sich gut ein Drittel der Lohndifferenz auf geschlechtsspezifische Unterschiede in diesen Merkmalen zurückführen lässt. Der Rest beruht auf nicht beobachteten Faktoren. Hierzu gehören mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit auch diskriminierend wirkende Mechanismen auf dem Arbeitsmarkt, die für Frauen zu Abschlägen beim Verdienst führen.
