Unregistered Important is, salary review is yearly, usually what is the offer 2 years ago will not be the same 2 years later. It will just keep going up unless major economic crisis. Example female offered 3.6k as base 2 years ago and 2 years later new base is 3.9k. So 3.9k + 400 is 4.3k. the female two years increment will never hit 4.3k..lol. and in PS or CS, not many promote on 2 years mark. some times, when the newbies joined at the year govt say increment for new engineering student for example, the fresh new male ended up getting the pay as a female who worked 5 years. This is based on my own experience. Males are really seldom shortchanged, remember those sitting high up are mostly male too. It will only be more or on par. I urge the guys not to be so negative. If you really think you will be shortchanged then dont join PS or CS.lol

Female at 23 years old 3600. Gets 250 annually = $4100 at age 25 (and 2 years of savings head start)
VS
Male who enters workforce at 25 with NS factor = 3600 + 300 (NS) = $3900

Now tell me who is at the losing end?
Hello, the annual increment is not even 250. And the guys don't get just 300. All my male colleagues joined after uni infact ended up get higher than female degree holder who joined 2 years earlier. You can ask around from the local degree males in PS and CS. I am sure of that because i went through it and saw so many examples. If you don't believe, just join the PS and CS. For some males, their promotion increment percentage were even higher, and because they took into their 2 years, after working 3 more years they already considered 5 years in PS. Guys were never be shortchanged in terms of benefits. That is the facts.

Females almost never can go ahead of you in terms of money unless she is a scholar..coming from a female myself and have been in PS/CS for years.
After reading a few of these posts, I think you haven't consider the fact that females would start work 2 years earlier, i.e. a female at age 25 would earn 2 years of salary more than a guy at age 25. Not to forget from there would be possibly increment when you work from age 23 to age 25.

Of course, I haven't do any intense calculations, so I dare not say in the end long run which gender would earn more/less etc, but hopefully you can understand the above point.
