Tomorrow (Saturday) is EU Equal Pay Day.

The European Commission has designated November 3rd to highlight the average gap in pay between men and women across the EU.

The latest figures from Eurostat show that men earn 16.2 per cent more than women across the 28 member States.

Grace Bolton of the EU Commission office in Ireland says that women in the EU, on average in relative terms, will work for free from tomorrow until the end of the year.
