Korea's income gap between male and female workers is highest among OECD countries Updated: 2014-06-09 23:12:20 KST

  Korea's income gap between male and female workers is highest among OECD countries
The income gap between male and female workers in Korea is the widest in the developed world.
This according to a new report by Korea's National Assembly Research Service.
OECD statistics on full-time employee wages in 2010 shows a gender income gap of 39 percent in Korea.
Japan, number two on the list, was way below at 29 percent.
Hungary had the smallest income gap at less than 4 percent.
The report advises the government to take legislative action to narrow the income gap by offering more support to women who want to return to their careers after starting a family.

"...more support to women who want to return to their careers after starting a family."

Titus 2: 4-5

4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 [To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
