Mark Tighe, in yesterday’s Sunday Times, reported:
Almost three-quarters of those who earn salaries of more than €100,000 a year in RTE are men, according to figures obtained by The Sunday Times. By contrast, well over half of RTE staff paid less than €40,000 are women.
…This has now been confirmed in figures supplied after a freedom of information request to the station.
They cover basic salary of staff members, and not contractors, overtime or allowances.
The figures show that, while women made up 48.3% of RTE’s 1,984 staff at the end of 2016, they accounted for just 29.6% of the 125 workers whose basic annual salary was more than €100,000.
