United Kingdom - Annual survey of earnings 2016 - October 31, 2016

The Office for national Statistics has published its Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings: 2016 provisional results. The Statistical bulletin provides a rich variety of data on levels, distribution and make-up of earnings and hours worked for employees by sex and full-time or part-time status in all industries and occupations. Based on these statistics, trade union confederation TUC has calculated that women earn less than men annually at every stage in their careers. The gender pay gap begins as soon as women start their careers. This increases steadily through her 20s, when a woman earns on average £1,944 less a year than men of a similar age and 30s, when the annual pay gap hits £3,034. However, the gender pay gap is at its widest when a woman hits 50. Then, a woman earns £85,040 less over the course of this decade than a full-time man.
