our pay gap is costing us a house
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.
