ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues surrounding disparities in the pay scales for male and female workers, citing the examples of ongoing cases in Leeds and London in England and in Edinburgh, Scotland. The possible resolutions include raising the pay of female workers to be at par with those of the males and implementing a pay cut for male workers. The latter option may be accompanied by a pay protection scheme that will postpone the pay cut for several years to give male workers time to make adjustments.
