Equal Pay Day is marked on April 9, 2019 in Ontario because women need to work 15.5 months - 3.5 months into the new year - to earn what a man does in 12 months.

Almost half of all major British companies have failed to reduce their gender pay gap over the previous year, data released on Friday showed, despite rising government pressure and public scrutiny.

Live Nation subsidiary Academy Music Group declared a mean gap of 21% and a median difference of 6%.

"The harm to Ontario's economy from the gender pay gap is profound" says Jan Borowy, co-chair of the Ontario Equal Pay Coalition, "based on the government's own report by Deloitte says that the Ontario government would increase revenues by $2.6 million per year if the gap was closed".

The law would also require employers to explain how they intend to eliminate any pay gaps within the organisation.

In their supporting narrative, Marie Stopes said that differences in the pay gap were due to there being disproportionately more men in certain divisions of the workforce.

The detailed information that must be published under the ministerial regulations includes the mean and median gap in hourly pay between men and women; the mean and median gap in bonus pay between men and women; the mean and median gap in hourly pay of part-time male and female employees; the percentage of men and of women who received bonuses and benefits-in-kind. "We want her (Thompson) to be aware and close the gender wage gap", says Rizvi. "This is a genuine commitment to lasting change and we must welcome these efforts even if it does mean the numbers do initially go up instead of down".

"Guide Dogs has an nearly 80 per cent female workforce, of which a higher proportion of women are found in more junior roles".

Save the Children was among the charities that have narrowed its pay gap.

In April 2018 a study was carried out which assessed companies across the United Kingdom that had over 250 members of staff.

"I am hugely encouraged by the findings of our first published Gender Pay Gap Report which reflects a small gap of 2%". Over the past three years Golin has worked hard to improve gender equality and diversity in the agency by championing flexible working and returnships, promoting or recruiting more women into senior leadership roles and improving support for maternity returners.

The gender pay gap is not the same as unequal pay, which is when businesses pay workers different rates for the same work and has been illegal as of 1970.
