Google has revealed a 17pc gender pay gap in the UK, although the technology giant says it pays men and women equally for the same work.
The internet search company revealed that the mean average for women’s salaries in the UK is 17pc below that for men, and bonuses are 43pc less generous.
The mean pay gap more generally in the economy is around that 17%. Which does surprise me. A tech firm has such a small one?
BTW, handy test for reporters’ ignorance. Anyone who compares this to the 9.6% average gap is spouting nonsense, that’s the median.
