Commenting on the government’s response to the Women and Equality Select Committee’s report on the gender pay gap published today (Tuesday), TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“The government needs to up its game and tackle the root causes of the gender pay gap – not ignore them.
“This means removing the barriers that stop women getting better-paid jobs. And helping parents to share out caring responsibilities more equally.
“Ministers need to stop dragging their heels and challenge workplace discrimination full on.”
