Just wondering why there is still labour market discrimination if this was made illegal by the Equality Act of 2010. Surely no employer would discriminate in wages because it'd lead to lawsuits. This probably sounds blunt and ignorant but I'd just like it explained to me by someone's who's more of an expert on the matter

Because if you can pay someone less you earn more money. On the flip side the wealthy like to scratch each other's back in mutual self interest.

My wife found out she was being paid £1k more than her colkeague (exactly the same job and other colleague had been working longer)

It is also quite common in teaching with individual teachers negociating higher pay deals compared to their equals.
