Here\’s how the gender pay gap should be measured:
In future, ONS will highlight the following measures:
• All female employees’ median pay compared with all male
employees’ median pay
• Female full-time employees’ median pay compared with male
full-time employees’ median pay
• Female part-time employees’ median pay compared with male
part-time employees’ median pay
The fuller report is here.
And those numbers are?
The measure for all employees showed a pay difference of 22.5 per
cent in favour of men and the pay difference for full-timers was 12.8
per cent in April 2008. When looking at part-time employees, the
difference was -3.5 per cent, meaning that part-time men were paid
less on average than part-time women.
And the real meaning of this? Fuck off Harman you lying cow.
And that goes double for the Fawcett Society and the EHRC.
