What do employers need to do to reign in the gender pay gap?
New analysis published by the TUC on Friday reveals that the average woman has to wait nearly a fifth of a year (66 days) before she starts to get paid, compared to the average man. The analysis shows that inequality within the workplace is still a major issue. So what do employers need to do to reign in the gap? Scarlet Harris, Policy Officer at the TUC, joined Share Radio Breakfast to discuss.

How would a Minimum Excise Tax for cigarettes affect independent retailers?
With the Spring Budget just around the corner, certain industries might be feeling a little worried with tax hikes on the horizon. One of the suggested tax hikes is cigarette tax, with the Chancellor expected to set a Minimum Excise Tax for cigarettes. There are concerns amongst retailers that this tax could have a major impact on their sales, as well as potentially costing UK taxpayers an estimated £1.2 billion in lost revenue. Will Hill, Director of British American Tobacco UK, joined Share Radio Breakfast to discuss this further.

How the government's Brexit defeat in the House of Lords will not delay Article 50
The government's insisting a defeat in the House of Lords last night makes no difference to its timetable for leaving the EU. Peers debating the Bill that'll authorise Theresa May to trigger the process backed an amendment guaranteeing the rights of European nationals living here. Ministers say it's 'disappointing' and 'unnecessary' - and vowed to overturn it in the Commons. Elsewhere in Europe, the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has set out the future of the EU after Brexit. Josh Lowe joined Georgie to discuss all these stories he’s been writing about in Newsweek.
