[en] Gender Pay Gap ; Discrimination ; Austria
[en] The starting point of this contribution is the ongoing high gender pay gap in Austria. Based on empirical case studies in three professional target groups (food-processing workers, secondary school teachers, academic engineers) we dealt with the context of wage system and working place practices, in order to provide an analysis of the reasons and the stability of wage discrimination. With the theoretical concepts of relationally, social construction of gender and the gendered substructure of organizations we examined central constellations and mechanisms of pay discrimination in its normative, micro-social and collective dimensions. Special attention has been paid to the issues of gender substructures of organizations. Results provide links for strategies to reduce gender pay discrimination.
