Fight for parity suffers blow as gender pay gap widens

The average pay disparity between male and female UK workers has grown since last year, new figures show.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed that the gap in earnings has stretched to more than 8%, up from 7.7% in April 2021. However, this is still down from 9% in April 2019. In addition, the stats show that the gender pay gap is at its most between the highest earning male employees and their female equivalents – an eye-watering 15.5% difference in pay. However, that gap fell dramatically to a 3% gap among the lowest earners.
