Gender wage gap in the labour market is a widely discussed issue in relevant discourse and literature. Societal attitude, occupational segregation, vertical segregation, barriers to entry and retention, and discriminatory practices at workplace are often cited as factors contributing to women getting lower wages compared to men. However, the ILO publication titled “Global Wage Report 2018/19: What lies behind gender pay gaps” singles out Bangladesh as an outlier where women’s average wages, both raw and factor-adjusted, were found to be higher than those of men. These counter-intuitive findings have raised a lot of interest and queries as regards the underlying causes leading to these results. The present study undertakes a thorough investigation of the methodology deployed by the ILO study and critically examines the factors contributing to the reverse gender gap as found in case of Bangladesh.

By 2030 the equivalent of more than 2 per cent of total working hours worldwide is projected to be lost every year, either because it is too hot to work or because workers have to work at a slower pace. In Southern Asia and Western Africa the resulting productivity loss may even reach 5 per cent. Unfortunately, heat stress is often accompanied by other challenges as it is more prevalent in countries with decent work deficits, such as a lack of social protection and high rates of informality and working poverty. Excessive heat levels aggravate inequality between rich and poor countries, and between population groups within the same country. The report shows the consequences of heat stress for different countinents and provides solutions approaches for different stakeholders.
