This final chapter brings together the main findings that have been reached by approaching the inequality of pay in two ways: differences between the average pay in different occupations (pay structure), and the distribution of individual earnings. The two different sections of the chapter are: The sources of the inequality of pay––in which nine conclusions are presented; and The possibilities of reducing the inequality of pay.

Keywords: average pay; differences in average pay; equality; income distribution; inequality; occupation; pay; pay distribution; pay equality; pay inequality; pay structure
