Being in an equalitarian world does not imply a world of serenity for both sexes. World labour force is growing with both sexes but the issue of inequality still remains without exception in many developed and under-developed economies. The purpose of this book is to analyse the presence of gender wage discrimination across sectors in the Mauritian economy. I made use of Continuous Multipurpose Survey Data (CMPHS) from the Statistics Mauritius for 5 consecutive years: 2006-2010 and applied some metrics. The gender wage gap in public sector is lower than in private sector and there is evidence of sticky floors which outweighs glass ceilings across years and in both sectors. Moreover, discrimination level is higher across years and fairly stable. This book adds light to the gender wage gap analysis as no micro-study has been done at present for Mauritius and should especially be useful to professionals in Research and Policy Development fields, or anyone else who may be considering utilizing some information for further studies.
