The forgotten women:the gender pay gap and middle age

Good to see my recommendations to the recent Select Committee on the Gender Pay Gap as it affects Older Women being reiterated by the Centre for Ageing Better’s Claire Turner.

Turner points out that while Government can take the lead, employers can do a lot more to help women with caring responsibilities stay in work and manage the impact of caring on their finances and plan for later life. They need to understand how many carers they employ; develop and implement a carers policy; train line managers and help them support carers.
She concludes: “Gender pay inequality is not just today’s bad news story – if not resolved it will add yet another layer of disadvantage for women in later life.
