did you know for every £1 a man in the uk earns, a woman in the same job only earns 100p

what is the gender pay gap?

In some occupations that is correct and that is how it should be.

But those who claim to be expert in such things estimate that there is a discrepancy in some parts of the economy between the salaries earned by man and women of equivalent experience and qualifications working in similar roles.

They also estimate that this gap is as low as it has ever been.

A Male and a Female working for the same company, in the same role, with the same qualifications and experience earn the same wage.
