We must continue working for equal pay

Girlguiding Scotland says that we must continue to work towards closing the pay gap on Equal Pay Day (Monday 9 November 2015). Girlguiding Scotland’s Chief Executive Denise King said:

“Girlguiding Scotland believes that all girls and women have the right to live in an equal society where they are paid the same as their male counterparts.

“It is encouraging news that Equal Pay Day is happening five days later than in 2014, indicating that the pay gap is slightly narrowing – however we still have a long way to go.

“So we’re calling for decision makers to continue working towards closing the gender pay gap and a more equal society for girls and women.”
