The graph below shows that in the Public Service men are, on average, paid more than women in each ethnic group, and Europeans are on average paid more than other ethnicities. Pacific women have the lowest average salaries in the Public Service, but they had the largest increase in average salaries over the last year – an increase twice the size of that for European men in percentage terms (the difference is less in dollar terms; average salaries for Pacific women increased around $3,800 over the last year, compared to around $2,800 for European men).
