(In addition, there are twice as many men on more than £100,000 at the BBC and the average man’s pay is £41,916 while it is only £36,827 for female employees. They spent £212 million on star salaries last year, but I guess with a budget of £3.5 billion, they can afford it. I have to say I wasn’t surprised by this story, the BBC is a perfect example of the “old boys network” in action. My question is, is there an ”old girls network”, and how do I get in it?)
According to the Daily Mail, there are five times as many full time male staff who earn over £200,000, which is more than the prime minister does, as women at the BBC.
