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.
