Goodish news on the gender pay gap in education

The gender pay gap in education and training improved  marginally over the last year, according to new data from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency. Across the board women in the system now earn 9.7 per cent less than men, the third narrowest gap in the country, behind wholesale trade, sorry no idea, (8.5 per cent) and public administration and safety (4.9 per cent).  Some 52 per cent of education and training managers are women, way behind healthcare’s 70 per cent but still the second best figure across the economy. So its all goodish, except that women making up 63 per cent of total E&T staff.
