Jemima Olchawski, Head of Policy at The Fawcett Society, discusses the gender pay gap
Today is Equal Pay Day. But why is it important. Well, the 10th November marks the time women are effectively working for free because of earning less on average than men. Equal Pay Day is calculated using the mean full time pay gap, which is currently 13.9%. At the current rate of progress, it will take over 60 years to close the gender pay gap. So from today, all women in full time work are effectively working for free. For more information, Georgie spoke to Jemima Olchawski, Head of Policy at The Fawcett Society.
