How to Get a Raise in 47 Seconds

In Sweden, women earn on average, $346,000 less than men over the course of their working life. In a PSA to draw attention to the issue, Annelie Nordstrom, chairwoman of Sweden’s largest union, ‘Kommunal’ is transformed into a man in the comically titled ‘How to Get a Raise in 47 Seconds’ video, released ahead of International Women’s Day earlier this year.

In the states, the comparison is about 77 cents earned by a woman to every $1 earned by a man. 

In New Zealand, women are afforded a grander scale of opportunity but pay disparity and gender inequality is still a major issue around the world.  The questions is – What are we doing about it?
