3.8m women earn below £9 an hour
NEARLY a third of women earn less than the Real Living Wage compared with 18 per cent of men.
A Living Wage Foundation study found 3.8million women (28 per cent) get below £9 an hour – or £10.55 in London.
Director Tess Lanning said: “Millions of women are trapped in jobs paying below a Real Living Wage, particularly administrative, cleaning and caring roles.”
Campaigners want firms to commit to the rate rather than the Government’s National Living Wage – £7.83 for over-25s.
The LWF findings have been released to mark Equal Pay Day today.
