UK Gender Pay Gap Persists

A new study shows that women in Britain earn consistently less once they have children—even though the overall gender pay gap has narrowed over the past two decades, AP reported. The study by the Institute of Fiscal Studies said Tuesday that women find that by the time their first child reaches the age of 12, their hourly pay is down 33% versus that of men. Overall, women in paid work receive 18% less per hour than men, compared to 28% less in 1993. The closing of the overall gap was down to improvements in the pay rates of less well-qualified women.
