HSBC reveals shocking gender pay gap
Text size Aa Aa

Bank HSBC has reported a huge gender pay gap within its organisation.

One estimate showed men were paid almost sixty percent more than women for an hourly wage. The bank said a lack of women in senior roles, especially in the UK, worsened the figures.

54% of HSBC workers are female, making the figures even more shocking.

They went on to say they tried to make earnings as fair as possible and are aiming to have a greater number of women in senior roles.

Businesses with more than 250 staff have until April 4th to report their gender pay gap to the British government.
