Female carers not paid enough

31st May 2007

The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) has published a report warning that female carers receive lower salaries than their male counterparts.

They state that low levels of pay and high turnover rates are contributing to a "caring timebomb" which could cause serious future issues, including reduced standards. EOC chair Jenny Watson said the government "hasn't kept up with the way services are delivered today" and should update the Equal Pay Act to include "the contracting out of services."
