Quotes

Scarlet Harris, spokesman for the group, said: "Clerical, cleaning and caring work, which is predominantly carried out by women, has experienced some of the fastest growth in self-employment in recent years. These women, who already suffer poverty rates of pay, are now having to contend with the poor working conditions and complete lack of job security that self-employment brings. These shocking gender pay gap figures should end any delusions people have about the UK's four million self-employed workers."
"We look forward to additional companies joining the list of America's Top Corporations for Women's Business Enterprises and to charting the successes of our current honorees to continue to Join Forces and ensure that Leading Companies are recognized for their commitments. This 'Success Together' will allow WBEs to thrive" Prince-Eason said
TUC General Secretary Frances OFrances O Grady said: "These are encouraging figures for the millions of people desperate for work...But people already in work have less to cheer about with prices still rising twice as fast as wages. While we have a record proportion of women in employment the widening gender pay gap means many women are not getting the fair pay they deserve."
