Press Release Summary = Gender Equality in Australian Work Setting

Press Release Body = A recent report on women\'s wages and working conditions in
Australia has been jointly released by the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity
Commission (HREOC), the National Foundation for Australian Women (NFAW) and the
Women's Electoral Lobby. The research findings suggest that labor policies be made
to address women\'s issues in the workplace, such as discrimination, leave
provisions, and the availability of family-friendly working schedules.

Interestingly, men and women\'s wages still differ considerably in Australia, despite
its supposedly democratic work setting. This is a crucial issue since there are
more women than men in minimum-wage occupations such as in the childcare industries,
aged care, cleaning, retail trade, and hospitality.

On a brighter note, the demand for immigrants to Australia is steadily rising,
reaching an all-time high last August. The proposed policies for gender equality in
Australia assure that skilled workers and even students, who wish to migrate to
Australia, will have better opportunities to integrate into the community while
contributing to the country\'s economy.
