Fake statistics again

UK working women are losing out on £138bn each year compared with their male counterparts and those in London are most affected, figures compiled by the Young Women’s Trust show.

While men earn an average full-time salary of £39,003 a year, women in full time work earn 23pc less, or £29,891, largely because male employees tend to be paid a higher wage, reach more senior positions and they are also more likely to work in higher-paid industries, the Young Women’s Trust said. Considering there are UK’s 15.1m working women in the UK, that means collectively, those women are missing out on £137.7bn, or £9,112 each, a year.

People doing different jobs, to different levels of application, get paid different amounts? Scandalous!

  1. Spoiler alert. Women working at department store perfume counters earn less than blokes working down coal mines.

    Lots of construction sites and garbage collection companies are looking for staff.

    The fact is most of the work women do in the work place is pointless and we would be better off if they stayed home. Yes, someone has to make the coffee and sell pretty trinkets. But by and large we not only can do without HR departments, we would be better off without them. Likewise most of the Civil Servants in the softer female Departments. Most teachers. A lot of nurses. And so on.

    This Ayesha Javed is a real math wizzard!
