Trade Unions Want More Recognition for Women

essex web design news

Despite the fact that it has been over forty years since the Equal Pay Law was enacted women are still discriminated against in the workplace. Whether it is recruitment or progression in their jobs, women are not paid as well as their male counterparts and nor do they enjoy similar growth opportunities. Trade unions such as GMB have asked the government to recognise the fact that women are not a minority in the working population of the country. In fact, women workers account for 49.4% of paid workers of the 24.2 million strong UK working population. In Wales, women account for 51% of the workers, 51.4% in Northern Ireland and 50% in Scotland.

Nick has been involved in website design since the very early days. He has experienced the shift in focus like few others in the industry and is one of the few who been able to move with the times. With a number of very high profile accounts under his belt including early websites for Vogue Magazine, Debenhams, Top Shop and Harrods, Nick quickly learned what worked for large organisations and their customers – a skill which has been the mainstay of his design-led work ever since.
