Speech from the Throne

Gender Pay Gap

“It will eliminate the gender pay gap within the core public sector and encourage the private sector to do the same.”

Failed to deliver.

Pay equity legislation stalled. Govt blocked National bills twice, and have left their own sitting on the order paper for 6+ months.

Overall gender pay gap (9.3%) unchanged since 2017, Public sector gender pay gap was 10.7% in 2018.
