The speech delivered by Tessa Jowell, employment minister of Great Britain, during the launch of the Equal Opportunities Commission's Taskforce report on equal pay at the end of February 2001 is the main focus of this article. She believes that at the start of the 21st century, the fact that there is a pay gap at all between women and men is fundamentally wrong. The report focuses on pay discrimination by employers. The government is committed to strong and successful businesses. Treating employees fairly increases satisfaction, increases recruitment and increases productivity. A bigger, more diverse workplace is good for business, with so many women entering the workforce the pool of talents, skills and potential available to employers is increasing all the time.
