our pay gap is cost­ing us a house

Grazia (UK) - - Fashion + Beauty Charts -

The dead­line for larger com­pa­nies to pub­lish their gen­der wage di­vides is fi­nally here. And three years af­ter Grazia won a his­toric vic­tory in our Mind the Pay Gap cam­paign – re­quir­ing firms to de­clare any in­equal­ity – new sta­tis­tics from the Young Women’s Trust show the di­vide is cost­ing us the price of a house. Men take home £222,913.60 more than us over a life­time. From the day we join the work­force in our early twen­ties, women take home £1,550 less a year, which in­creases to an av­er­age £7,600 a year by our fifties. We’re ready to have the big con­ver­sa­tion on lev­el­ling the play­ing field but, to­day, we’re call­ing for busi­nesses to act.
