To mark this year’s Equal Pay Day here is my #PayGapPledge: argue for better maternity and paternity leave.

According to the Fawcett Society, the average pay gap for full-time workers stands at 14.1%, a figure that hasn’t changed in the last three years. In the Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East constituency, the pay gap now stands at 11.9%.

It is more important than ever that we work together to close the gap for good and take a stand against gender inequality in the workplace.
