Setting the Gender Pay Gap Standard

Through this investigation it was found that 78% of the 10,000 firms pay men more than women.
What is the gender pay gap?
This is the difference between the average hourly pay, different to comparing men and women who are in similar job roles or hold similar values to a business or organisation.
This means that the overall average pay is compared regardless of the job roles, locations, market forces, qualifications, etc.
