In 2015 men were paid an estimated 17.2% more than women according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. There is currently no proposed equal pay legislation in the Australian parliament.  Opponents of equal pay laws argue that pay gap statistics don’t take into account women who take jobs that are more family-friendly in terms of benefits rather than wages and that women are more likely to take breaks in employment to care for children or parents. Proponents argue that laws should be passed to even the playing field for women in all parts of the country including Western Australia where the pay gap is 26%.  See recent equal pay news
