Equality Bill U-turn could damage businesses, warns expert

Thumb Down

It doesn't add up

OK, take an example. 10 people, do the same job, a complex job requiring previous skills and training. 5 are men, 5 are women.

One of them (a male) is highly experienced and negotiated a £5k higher wage. Women find out about this. All demand the higher wage. Soooo, we have one highly experienced man on a higher wage, 5 women get the wage whether deserved or not, and four men who are discriminated against because of their sex on a lower wage. And possibly a bankrupted company who can't afford another £25k a year wage bill.

Nice one Government. Do you want any small businesses to succeed?
