Ryanair reveals United Kingdom gender pay gap of 67 per cent

Eileen GuzmanApr 04, 2018

Women working for the United Kingdom subsidiary of Blackstone Group LP earn on average 30% less than men, the firm said in its gender pay gap report for 2017.

United Kingdom employers are now under heightened scrutiny over their pay structures and companies with more than 250 staff have to report their gender pay gap by April 4 to the Government Equalities Office.

United Kingdom businesses with more than 250 employees have until tomorrow to report their gender pay gap. Apple said 30 percent of its workforce in the United Kingdom was represented by women, with the number having risen from 28 percent in 2014. The campaign is being led by Labour MP Stella Creasy and is backed by female MPs from all the other main political parties. Barclays International, the division that houses Barclays' corporate and investment bank, paid women just under half of what they paid men on average.

She told The Guardian: "If we are serious about tackling the gender pay gap then we..."

The median pay gap between men and women at the organisation is 21% in favour of men.

The difference in the median hourly wages earned by men and women in Britain now stands at 18 per cent. It claimed the majority of men were employed at higher grading levels in specialist roles, while most of its female employees were in support positions.

"We are a meritocracy, and gender is not a factor in the way that we pay our people", the bank said in a statement on its website.

The aviation industry has a particular issue with gender equality as the vast majority of pilots are men. All businesses with over 250 employees were given the date as a deadline to reveal the difference in average pay between male and female employees. "We are still living with the vestiges of that culture, with women representing 20% of the transport industry as a whole", explained Kelly.

However by 10am this morning (April 3) figures show that just 7,590 have done so, with 79% of those having a pay gap.
