The consistency of this wage gap appears in another study** that shows the difference in earnings between working men and women in Canada. If you add up the earnings of all working women, that sum is about 31% less than the combined earnings of all working men. For women of colour, the gap is 37.5%, while it’s estimated that Indigenous women earn a whopping 54% less than men.
