Men falling behind, women standing still

Intelligent post from Daniel Tomlinson at the Resolution Foundation, pity it wasn’t more accurately reported.

Men are falling behind previous generations of workers, women are standing, which, as Tomlinson says, is a disappointing return on all the strides they’ve made in education. And millennial men still earn more than millennial women.

As Tomlinson says, it’s good news that low paid roles are now being more evenly shared between women and men, but that doesn’t address the fact that the UK has a low paid service sector economy – and that’s the point that was missed out of the press coverage.
