At Gapsquare we have worked with over 70 companies in the past 18 months who have taken the initiative on solving their gender pay gap and made use of our online tool that analyses and explains their gap for them.
It’s an interesting world out there for women and men in work. With some industries demonstrating higher workplace inequality than others. Construction and Building Trades Supervisors, for example, are demonstrating a gender pay gap of 45%!
Can we take a moment to take that in? Women in that particular field are likely to be working just as hard as men, but for almost half the pay.
Despite certain (American Presidential) comments that women would hypothetically make the same as men if they were to do as good a job, there’s no reason to believe that female Construction and Building Trades Supervisors are falling asleep at their desks or taking coffee breaks twice as often as men. I’m not even sure it’s possible to sleep that much whilst drinking that much coffee. So where do these problems coming from?
