Week 4

Men earn more than women in bonuses
reports the BBC (25th October 2015)

"Latest figures show that, overall, women in the UK earn 19% less than men."

"Up to the age of 40, there is very little difference between the earnings of men and women. But beyond that age, when more women are likely to have taken time out to raise families and work part-time, there is a significant gap."
