Today the wage gap between men and women in the private sector amounts to 20% in Belgium. The biggest cause is part-time work. And part-time work also means a part-time pension. A grim prospect for women, as their pensions amount to 39% less than men’s on average.
To denounce this inequality mortierbrigade came up with a film telling the story of a couple whose age difference is on par with the gap of women’s pensions. The clip which mainly seems lovely and emotional, contains a second -darker- layer revealing an inconvenient truth: “Women’s pensions are 39% lower than men’s. Increase your inheritance”.
