Equal Pay Day 2009: the countdown begins

Friday 30 October is Equal Pay Day in the UK and in the run-up, we are calling on the Government to get tough on pay inequality in the UK.

Why 30th October? It’s the day that women effectively receive their last pay cheque of the year. This is because the 17.1% full-time gender pay gap is equivalent to men being paid all year round while women work for free after 30th October.

The gender pay gap isn’t inevitable. Equal Pay Day 2009 is your opportunity to do something about it.
