Women in their 60s are paid 25 per cent less than men, a report has suggested, amid claims they suffer “double discrimination” of age and gender.
The median annual salary for females in full-time work within this age bracket was £26,230 compared with £34,325 for men, according to Rest Less, a company which offers help and advice to those in later life.
For those aged in their 50s the difference is 23 per cent, the analysis claims.
Stuart Lewis, founder of Rest Less, said the findings indicate that older women are suffering double-pronged discimination, with their age as well as their gender working against them.
It’s double nowt you stupid publicity seeking hound.
The cause of the gender pay gap is the having of, and caring for, children. This being something that women in their 20s – by and large you understand – have not done as yet and something that – by and large you understand – women in their 50s have done. There’s nothing double about it that is.
