'"It is very disturbing that men's starting salaries have increased over the past year but those of women have not, especially given that women make up the majority of university graduates," the research executive manager at the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, Carla Harris, said.
"The lesson here is that the gender pay gap continues to have a very real impact on the bank balance of young women starting their careers."
The pay gap was most pronounced for those working in architecture and building, dentistry, optometry and law.
However, female computer scientists, earth scientists, pharmacists and engineers were amongst those women who earned slightly more than men.
Only education, humanities and medicine had no gender pay gap in starting salaries.'
