Gender Pay Gap " set to widen again"
25 February 2011
The gender pay gap is set to widen again, Marlyn Glen said today, commenting on figures she has received in response to a Parliamentary Question on the differences in earnings between men and women.
"Unfortunately, the narrowing of the gender pay gap is set to widen again.
"The pay gap between women in the public sector and in the private sector indicates that the sectors are, generally speaking, composed of different types of jobs and sometimes different conditions."
