Caption in The Sun: Karren Brady with men’s rights activist Mike Buchanan
Tomorrow evening, 10:00pm to be exact, I’ll be appearing in a Channel 5 programme on the gender pay gap, fronted by Karren Brady. Five days ago we posted a piece on the matter, titled Karren Brady: “Why Do Men Earn More Than Women?”
A tip of the hat to The Sun for plugging the programme on its website, here. The photograph they’ve used (above) captures Karen’s mood perfectly, from the beginning of the two-hour filming session to the end. I’m expecting only a few minutes will have survived the editing process.
William Collins’s important blog piece on the gender pay gap is here. Spoiler alert:
The median gender pay gap is in favour of women for part-time employees, and has been for 20+ years.
Post-tax, the gap for full-time employees has been in favour of women for a number of years.
