Rise in the gender pay gap
4th November 2014

The gap is said to be on the rise and figures released by the Trades Union Congress suggest that just one in 15 women who are working full-time earn £50,000 or more a year, compared to one in seven men. 

TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“This year has seen a shock rise in the gender pay gap after years of slow, steady progress. Ministers should be ashamed of presiding over this latest dismal record on pay.”

We spoke to Scarlet Harris from the TUC.
