What’s worrying about this is that it seems that the government actually believe in the gender pay gap. Either that or it’s just a cynical attempt to cash in on the victim mentality that feminists are encouraging in women.
At best it’s window-dressing based on ignorance, at worst it’s an acceptance of a destructive force rather than combating it. A choice between bad or worse (or worser as Mrs Morgan would probably say).
Hands up if you voted for this because you thought Ed Miliband was incompetent?
