Does the gender pay gap begin with pocket money?
Wage discrimination may start at home, with boys paid more pocket money than girls for doing household chores
Does the gender pay gap start in the home? According to a website that lets parents set up online accounts to pay their pocket money, boys are getting 15% more than girls for doing the same chores. The site looked at 3,800 jobs which parents had registered to pay for via the site, and found that while boys earned an average of £1.46 a chore, girls were given just £1.25.
