Finns Support Granting Women Equal Pay

According to a poll conducted by Sanomat, half of all Finns support granting all workers approximately equal basic pay hikes. Nearly 80% are in favor of an income agreement that promotes gender equality. It appears, according to the poll, that support for female pay equity receives support from only 55% of workers, while most high-ranking white collar professionals support gender equity with a slight catch. They tend to oppose equal pay raises for all workers and support a differentiated pay raise scale. This undoubtedly reflects the feelings of professionals that they are economically more important than ordinary workers.

It is interesting that the Green Party, which is probably the most left wing in Finland, tends to support higher pay rises for nurses and teachers, two occupations in Finland in which females are the highest percentage.
