    STILL A WAY TO GO: Women’s Health Goulburn North East chief executive officer Amanda Kelly believes there are more opportunities for women in the workplace than there were years ago however females are still not on an equal footing with their male counterparts.

    WOMEN are leading the way in Wangaratta when it comes to the work front with hundreds more females than males holding down a job, according to the latest ABS data.

    There are 22,453 employment positions in Wangaratta with 11,382 women and 11,071 men, figures that defy the state trend of almost 137,000 more men than women who hold down a job.

    Women in Wangaratta hold 311 more jobs than men and they are also more likely to work multiple jobs than their male counterparts, with 519 more females than males employed at various workplaces.

    Out of the 15,561 employed people, 12904 are single job holders, up by 0.6 per cent over 12 months, but only a one per cent rise in six years.
