Kate Andrews appears on the Coffee House Shots podcast
Kate explained that gender pay gaps are more or less meaningful depending on whether pay disparity is examined between comparable roles. The official data from the ONS paints women’s standing in the workplace in a much better light, partially because it takes differentials like age and part-time work into account.
Kate also highlighted how businesses in the aviation industry are being unfairly demonised, despite their best efforts to recruit more women into high-paid roles.
