In Switzerland, salaries for equally qualified men and women doing the same job can vary by as much as 22% in men’s favour. (swissinfo.ch/SRF) 

To narrow that gap, the Swiss cabinet wants all businesses with at least 50 employees to conduct an analysis of wages every four years subject to external review.

Many women return to work after a long absence raising a family, so they may have less experience in the job than their male counterparts. Qualifications and training and the level of responsibility affect wages.
