Powys County Council has reported new figures, which reveal the organisation pays men 10.72% more than it pays women. Green Party County Councillor Emily Durrant said;

“This is a depressing statistic that reveals the truth behind the state of gender equality. Progress towards equality is far too slow. It upsets me to think of all the hard working women in our Council who are being short-changed every day of their work lives. It is equivalent to a woman putting her hand in her own pocket and paying the men in her team at the end of every day for doing the same job.”
