Gender Pay Gap
This is a myth which gives the impression that women are paid less than men for the same work. This is already illegal.
The ‘gender pay gap’ is calculated by comparing the average incomes of the male and female employees in an organisation. These tend to show that. on average, men are paid more. However, this is almost entirely due to the fact the men have qualifications for the higher paid jobs or have more experience due to having spent longer in the career.
