Men Are Still on Top in Ireland; WOMEN WORK & EARN LESS..BUT LESS LIKELY TO BECOME ALCOHOLICS


Byline: ED CARTY

WOMEN work less, earn less, and live longer but are more likely to suffer depression than men, a report revealed yesterday.

On the other hand, more men have seats in the Dail and Seanad, more are unemployed and suffer from higher rates of alcoholism, schizophrenia and criminality. The latest official study of the battle of the sexes also revealed many of the old stereotypes are d1 still at play in 21stcentury Ireland. More than one million men are working compared with 886,500 women - a fifth of whom are in secretarial or admin jobs compared with just 5.5% of men.

The Central Statistics Office said women are consistently earning less then their male colleagues.

In 2007, a woman's wage was, on average, about two-thirds of a man's and after taking into account the longer hours put in by men, the hourly rate for women's wages is about 87% of men's.

Craft jobs showed the least gender balance with men filling 96% of roles in the sector.

The CSO's life and death statistics also gave some startling figures including: IN 2006 women were on average living until 81.5, almost five years longer than men MEN are more likely to die younger with 15 to 24-year-olds at particularly high risk from suicide and car accidents, and FOUR times as many men die by suicide.
