Our thanks to Mike P for this garbage in the Mail. We’re going to see much more of it in the coming weeks as firms reveal their utterly meaningless ‘gender pay gaps’. An extract:
But some now have following pressure from campaigners. Sophie Walker, leader of the Women’s Equality Partner, said: ‘These figures show gender inequality runs through every level if the economy. It is scandalous that women still make up barely a fifth of top earners, and this discrepancy is not confined to those in well-paid jobs.’
It comes as the Women’s Budget Group, which analyses the impact of Government policies, warned of pledge to raise personal tax allowance to £12,500.
It said the increase will disproportionately benefit men because 66 percent of those who do not earn enough to benefit are women. [J4MB: Workers who earn over £12,500 disproportionately benefit over those who don’t. More men than women earn over £12,500, so men disproportionately benefit. Anything which disproportionately benefits men, regardless of the reason, is to be deplored. Anything which disproportionately benefits women, regardless of the reason, is to be welcomed.]
