In Switzerland, men earn almost a fifth more than women. This prominent wage gap is a grievance to the Juso group and one which they aim to eliminate immediately.

The notion of a legal Friday off for women has only gained support from the Alternative Left and the Green Free List in the Berne City Council.

This political initiative aims to promote equality and resolve the issue of the wage gap in Switzerland.
