The wage gap between men and women in the Netherlands is decreasing, mostly due to an increasing level of education among women, according to Statistics Netherlands. Young women in the country now earn more on average than young men.

According to the Statistics Office, this goes hand in hand with the fact that on average young women are better educated than young men. Women under the age of 36 that work for the government earn more on average than their male counterparts. In the industry, women under the age of 30 earn more than their male peers.
