Iceland mandates equal pay to cut the pay gap. Of course they do.

Not content with being ranked 1st in the world as the most gender equal country in the world and unwilling to accept a seven percent pay gap.

Nope, the Nordic utopia will not rest until gender equity is achieved.

The latest proof lies in a bill introduced in Iceland’s parliament on Tuesday to mandate equal pay by asking employers to prove they pay men and women equally.

If passed, and given it enjoys support from both major parties (envy again!) it’s likely, it will require public and private businesses to demonstrate they offer equal pay.
