BBC has 'failed' on equal payWatch
The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) select committee suggested women at the corporation were earning "far less" for doing comparable jobs.
In July 2017, the publication of the BBC's highest-earning presenters revealed an imbalance between the numbers of men and women at the top of the list, leading to an outcry and the corporation commissioning three separate reviews into pay.
The MPs also criticised the BBC's investigations into pay, saying the corporation had "failed adequately to consult staff".
The BBC added that its reform to pay structure would "ensure fairness and give an unprecedented level of transparency and information about pay ranges for all staff".
But BBC Women, a group representing female journalists and producers, said the MPs' report revealed there was "intractable processes, lack of transparency, evasive tactics, and no genuinely independent oversight" at the corporation.
"BBC management should lead by example, implement the recommendations made by the select committee immediately, meet its legal obligations on pay," it said.
What do you think about this?
As things currently stand, I mostly see women on committees whining about presenters and producers being paid differently when those people negotiated their own contracts with the BBC. The big dogs get big salaries because the BBC is willing to pay for them. If these women think they are worth more, there's always other networks.
The BBC knows it's not breaking the law (if that is the case) so it's responding with hollow gestures and 'evasive tactics' because that's really all it can do.
ii) She was the China editor, and her male peer was the North American editor, he earns more than her becuase the viewers and digester of BBc news care more about North American news than they do about Chinese news, she cries
iii) Goes in front of parliament to cry about alleged sexism and fails to do the legal thing and file a class action lawsuit if there was actual evidence of sexism.
The BBC is full of spineless men who wouldn't stand up and call out her crap, because if only one did (granted he'll probably get fired) i'm sure others would. Heck the BBC's lawyer who represented them at the parliament hearing ( a woman btw) says this isn't a case of sexism and was genuinely confused as to why it was masked as it, says its a matter of viewership numbers not vaginas.
Country full of spineless men, continue to bend over, cos it only takes a deplorable woman to take advantage
It is depressing to see the BBC cave in to people like CG and her type, nobody dares to say boo to this mobbish atmosphere where basic emotions have come to drive public life to such extent. It is incredible that they implicitly admit that the reason they pay the North America correspondent more than the Asia one was a matter of sexism, that it was because he happens to be a man and that she was indeed the victim of some terrible misdeed. Nazi Germany may not have started quite like this but I'm beginning to suspect the fall of the Roman Empire may have.
