This 24015 video from the USA is called One Woman Discovers The Wage Gap.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
The Netherlands has dropped three places in the ranking of countries with the least inequality between men and women, the Global Gender Gap Index. Three African countries have overtaken us: Burundi, Namibia and South Africa. The Netherlands is now 16th on that list …
Iceland is like last year the leader on the list. Next come Norway and Sweden. In the top 10 are three developing countries: Rwanda, the Philippines and Nicaragua. The Netherlands for the first time since 2010 is no longer among the best fifteen, but still scores better than other Western countries like Britain and the United States.
Furthermore, often Dutch women work in clerical occupations. Those jobs are likely to disappear because of automation.
