Showing my age here using a 1970s catchphrase from "It ain't half hot, Mum." Seriously though, I'm never happy to hear that anyone is experiencing a decrease in income but four things stand out from this report: 1) the shocking £22,200 disparity in average basic salary between male & female lawyers, 2) the depressing finding that men's bonuses are 66 % higher than women's, C) the disheartening discovery that 75 % of men receive bonuses but only 58 % of women, BUT D) the welcome prediction that women will achieve pay parity with men in six years time, in 2021!
