Aaah, Glorious!

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.

    Err…while I concur with the sentiment, could you fill in a little bit of the gap in the logic there?

  2. @1 it’s become popular among the unthinking section of the left (yes, insert jibe here, and fuck off) to compare full-time male earnings with part-time female earnings, and claim that that is the gender pay gap.

    Tim adds: And I was the first person (at least so far as I know) to start screaming about it. Which is why I’m so happy at this result (err, no, of course I didn’t cause the result, just happy about it).
