Often a justification for wage gap between the genders is attributed to the ‘tendency’ of women in quitting the job first or before the stipulated time. However, recent study asserts that women are no more likely to quit their jobs than men, since the early 1990s. Statistics Canada stated in the report, Female workers are traditionally considered more likely than men to quit their jobs, to be absent or to take more days off for family reasons. However, recent findings, which documents gender differences in resignations and absenteeism, shows that disparities between the sexes have been shrinking since 1994 to the point where gaps have virtually disappeared. The study also found, on average, men took two sick days a year, while women took about four. But there were no gender differences in most other paid and unpaid absences. The only exception was women with young children. On average, they took two more days of unpaid absences than women who did not have young children.
