    Women are likely to earn £300,000 less than men over their working lives, according to a new analysis that has sparked fresh calls for more shared parental leave to close the UK’s stubborn gender pay gap.
    The UK has one of the highest gender gaps in Europe even though it's been almost half a century since the Equal Pay Act was introduced.

    The gender wage gap has been debunked a million times. Men earn more on average because, among other completely not sexist reasons they do more work.
    Stop trying to stir the feminists.

    I'm more worried about not getting the job in the first place compared to male applicants since that's the main cause of the pay gap (in general not just the same job). Plus don't anyone pretend they know if the gap exists or not - there is evidence and studies leaning both ways so the only way you are choosing is based on your pre existing beliefs and that's not entirely accurate.

    Obama, Cameron, Hillary, the EU, the UN, the media and every feminist in the land never stop talking about it and how it needs to be fixed. So how can you say you get paid the same as men?

    Please post a link to one of these studies (from a reliable source) just so we can see that there are differences in studies. Otherwise people are right to assume you're talking rubbish. I just want to see one of these for myself as I only ever see people talk about them without being able to source them.

    Do you feel that's the same as giving up or are you still angry but just keep it contained? I suppose it's like how some people don't care about politics

    That is an incredibly fair request. The methodology of the pro-gender wage gap studies has been attacked numerous times, but I can't think of a single time someone asked to see the anti-gender wage gap study to check that its methodology was sound.

    I'm interested in this myself, now.

    Say you needed a pay rise to be able to buy the house you'd always wanted. You worked extra hard all year but at the end of the year it was your male colleague, who had worked slightly less hard and had done slightly less for the company, that got it and you are stuck on the same rung of the job ladder. Then would you be angry? If it happened to you?

    no, id be a bit annoyed but i wouldnt be angry
    just keep trying
    not everyone gets everything first go whether they deserve it or not
    plus that colleague might have done something for the company ie raised alot of money etc. its unlikely il be around him during work ALL the time so i dont know what else he has done for the company as im too busy doing my own job to observe him doing his
