Whenever a story comes out about the gender pay gap the tone is implying that the reason is pay discrimination on behalf of the employers. Another more likely reason is WA resources are heavy in FIFO workers who are predominantly male. It is well understood that these arrangements are not family friendly and women doing this hot, dirty work are in the minority. What is the pay difference between men and women doing FIFO work? That's the figure that will tell you if "WA is going backwards".
