Equal pay is ‘60 years away,’ claims new research

Friday 8 August, 2014

At the heart of Labour's next manifesto will be a commitment to equalise pay between men and women, reports The Independent. Current figures, based on an analysis by the House of Commons Library, the gender pay gap currently stands at 19.7 per cent, with women earning only 80p for every £1 earned by men. At the current rate of progress, Labour says, it would take women more than 60 years to achieve financial equality with men - more than a century since the promise of equal pay was first made in Labour's Equal Pay Act of 1970. http://tinyurl.com/pr4wqow
