“It can be concluded that bosses behave differently towards women than towards men,” said Hanna Kinowska of the Warsaw School of Economics.

She added: “The most important difference was related to fair assessment. Women admitted that they are less fairly evaluated by their bosses than men.”

Kinowska pointed out that data on wages published every two years by the country’s Central Statistical Office (GUS) shows that women in Poland earn on average 17 percent less than men in similar roles.

“You could say that’s not much, because in the United States women earn 25 percent less than men in the same positions,” Kinowska said.

“On the other hand... in positions with the highest salaries in Poland - in managerial and specialist posts - women also earn a quarter less than men on average," she added.
