End the gender pay gap

by phildunn on 5 November, 2019

The Bournemouth Echo has recently carried a story highlighting the fact that women in Bournemouth receive on average 20% lower pay than their male counterparts. I find it appalling that this issue has STILL not been resolved.

Way back in 1970 (when I was 5 years old) the first Equal Pay Act was introduced to try to prohibit the discrimination between men’s and women’s pay.

In coalition the Liberal Democrats backed the 2010 Equality Act which replaced and streamlined the 1970 Act and, again, underscored the illegality of discrimination on the basis of gender.

That such pay gaps still exist is a matter of national shame and must be addressed. No employee should receive a salary different to their colleagues where the work being undertaken is of equal value. Excuses are often made for such practices and, as a former Trade Union Official I have probably heard them all! It is not acceptable.
