Serco is a major British outsourcing company, with an annual turnover of £3.1 billion, and 100,000+ employees, mostly in the UK.
Our thanks to a supporter, Dave, for sending us this. It’s the short multiple-choice quiz Serco uses as part of the employment process. Question 2 is this:
What is the average percentage less that female workers are paid compared to males working exactly the same position? [my emphasis]
The correct answer, 0%, is of course not available. Human Remains has long been a female-dominated field, and we shouldn’t be surprised to see feminist ideology play a part in the recruitment process – though it’s rarely so overt. I think we can guess how a man who wrote in ‘0%’ would fare thereafter with his job application.
The best article we know about in connection with the gender pay gap is William Collins’s, here. The positive pay gap for women in their 20s has increased since he wrote the piece.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
