  1. It Needs to be made illegal to have a different pay for men than women for the same job. a CEO is a CEO whether they are male of female.

  2. It has been illegal to have different pay for men and women who do the same job since 1970. This came about as a result of the Ford sewing machinists’ strike of 1968.

    The Pay Gap is, in the main, about men and women doing different jobs, which have different salaries.

    A major cause of the pay gap that mothers make different choices about work to men. Women who are not mothers have a much smaller pay gap than mothers. So a key issue is about childcare, maternity breaks, part-time working, training and higher paid work that is more difficult for mothers to take on.

    lots of other good resources on the TUC site for ideas what should be done to address the Pay Gap and causes other than motherhood.
