Gender pay gap increases in public sector

This Thursday, April 4 2019, will see companies share their gender pay gap figures. However, in 2019 it seems that the public sector is still failing to close the gap.

According to the latest figures, women are paid an average of 86p for every pound paid to men, reported The Guardian. In March 2018 the median pay gap was 14.1%, which was slightly higher than the 14% a year earlier. This is still below the national average of 17.9% across the public and private sectors.
