Swiss salaries will decrease in men and increase in women in 2021

Overall, in 2021, Swiss salaries fell by 0.2% in nominal terms and 0.8% in real terms. This was reported by the Federal Bureau of Statistics (FSO) this week, given the annual inflation rate of 0.6%.

However, looking at the breakdown, women saw a 0.6% increase in wages overall, and men saw an average 0.7% decrease in wages. This difference reflects the different types of work men and women do.

Wages for jobs in the public sector, a sector that employs more women, surged 3.7% in 2021. Men-dominated departments did not enjoy the same level of salary increases.

Nominal wages were reduced by 3.1% for operations such as coking coal, oil refining and chemical treatment, which are generally dominated by men. Salaries for software and IT, another sector of men’s preference, also fell by 3.1%. This partially reflects the hiring of a large number of staff with less years of experience. In another male-dominated sector, the construction industry, wage rates remained unchanged.
