‘Imagine you randomly picked 100 women who work in the UK and lined them up in order of who earns the most per hour, regardless of the hours they worked.

Then imagine you randomly took 100 men and did the same, before standing the two rows face to face.

If you walked halfway down the row, to the 50th woman and the 50th man, on average that woman would earn £2.52 less per hour than the man she was facing, or 18.4% less.

If you only lined up people with full-time jobs, you would expect the median woman to earn 9.1% less than the median man, or about £1.32 less per hour.

That’s the gender pay gap for median hourly wages.’

As a woman who has worked since I was 16 in the UK I feel it grossly unfair my female counterparts and myself are offered jobs that do not equal the pay of UK men. With a female prime minister leading the country I would hope a better outcome could be made now for UK women to be paid the same as men. Please sign this petition to show we want more pay per hour!
