I don’t care about the business case for equal pay

  • Special consideration for unequal pay— a few articles I’ve read talked about the fact that equal pay might be less of an issue because women typically take time off for life-events such as child-birth and parenting with greater frequency than men. In this instance unequal pay develops as a result of things like reduced time working
  • Benefits of equal pay — such as increased morale, reputation protection, easier talent attraction, etc
  • Realism of equal pay — there have been many arguments about how businesses can’t simply adopt equal pay overnight because of the cost associated with it and it’s an issue that needs corrected over time
