do people take this seriously or is everyone just playing along, currently im watching Bianca Jagger who is only there because she married a musician nearly a century ago slag off Ryanair on sky news, Theresa May says its a matter of "justice" and she is going to do stuff. So apart from wasting all the employees time who have to gather all this information, what it going to achieve?


What is the gender pay gap at your company? - BBC News

UK companies are rushing to submit their gender pay figures ahead of Wednesday's midnight deadline.
By 11:00 BST, 9,053 companies had done so, with more than 1,000 companies reporting in the last day alone.
Firms with more than 250 staff must state the average difference between male and female employees.
Of those that have published data, 78% pay men more than women, 13% pay women more and 8% said they had no gender pay gap, based on the median measure.

worst offenders? that doesnt make any sense

One of the biggest names among the worst offenders so far is Ryanair, which reported a 71.8% gender pay gap.
Meanwhile, High Street brands KFC, Matalan, Starbucks, Costa, McDonald's and Primark reported no difference in what they paid their female and male staff.

I see in the papers today UK conservative headquarters are boasting about how the figures reveal they pay their female staff on average nearly 13% more than they pay their male staff.

Will they be investigating themselves about this pay disparity between the genders?

They hired some girl to investigate but she took a few days off due to period cramps.

Uber PC Google released their gender pay comparison in the last few weeks and it was mostly in line with the general pay gap in favour of male employees.

But they say they drilled down through all the figures which were audited and they say in not one single case is a woman getting paid less for doing the same job as a man , the discrepancy's are accounted for in the types of work undertaken by each employee , seniority and hours worked etc , gender is not a factor. I suspect most companies will find the same.

It's not really in pay that the gap is an issue, it's in positions held within the companies where you have a disproportionate number of males holding senior positions.

That is basically the argument that is made by many , Google got criticized for paying their technical staff such as programmers(mostly men) etc more than their admin or customer support staff(mostly female). The fact that they have to pay their technical staff a high salary to stop them been poached dos not seem to register with people at all.

It may perhaps have crossed your line of sight - even sommat' ever so slightly - that there has been just a tincture of mention of, ahem, said equality "issues" in the newsmedia of late?

Marches, protests - some tit-bit about a trial up North??

Daily wall to wall coverage in the broadsheets concerning our oppressed blue-haired-nose-jewellery-wearing feminist friends? No?

Take a gander, whenever a spare moment shuffles up your way - I promise it's there to be found...

You need to look at the small print with respect to companies such as Ryanair. For example if the comparison is between pilots and cleaners there would be a massive difference in earnings with I would imagine very few female pilots.

Those uppity women.

This is why women shouldn't have been given the vote.
Once they got out of the kitchen they lost the run of themselves.

do you have a point instead of being passive aggressive? it matters because the focus is wrong that means wrong policies will be put in place and as I have a son coming up through the ranks I'd like to have a sense of how much discrimination he might face for being male so that he can side step it.

I think that you'll find that those advocating for wage equality include work value in their calculations.

I demand parity of gender deaths in the workplace.


97% employees who die at work are men (2009-2014 figures)

Two men a week die in workplace deaths in the UK according to official figures for the five year period from 2009-2014.


The leading cause of casualties was falls from height, which was most prevalent in the construction industry. These accounted for three out of every ten deaths amongst workers in the UK between in the past year. In total, 510 of the 528 people who died at work were male, accounting for nearly 97% of fatalities according to figures from the HSE
