27 Jun 2008

Govt announce Equality Bill The government has announced plans to force firms to make public the pay difference between male and female employees in a bid to tackle discrimination between the sexes.

Female students working part-time during the summer in order to support next year's studies who are concerned about pay discrimination could be pleased to hear the government is trying to tackle the problem.

Labour's deputy leader, Harriett Harman, is set to unveil the first draft of the Equality Bill in parliament today.

She told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "We have structural discrimination on pay. We will be able to see it clearly for the first time, workplace by workplace, and then women will be able see that they are paid less than men and they will be able to complain about it and challenge it."

Meanwhile, the Trades Union Congress revealed earlier in the month women being paid less than men for doing the same job reflects society and the big difference between expectation and realities.

A National Statistics report from April found women could lose out on earnings of £330,000 over a lifetime when compared to men.
