The contribution of degree subject to the gender wage gap among graduates: A comparison of Britain

Image

The contribution of degree subject to the gender wage gap among graduates: A comparison of Britain, France and Germany. It is a fact that women earn less than men. However, there is little consensus as to why this should be the case. In this project we focus on university graduates and show that degree subject is relevant to the gender wage gap. We draw on person-level data from Britain, France and Germany, and observe wages and degree subject for a large number of graduates. By Stephen Machin and Patrick A. Puhani.

Fit for Purpose

Fit for Purpose?The current system of Incapacity Benefit insists on all-or-nothing divisions into work or inactivity, health or ill-health, lack of disability or disability. Such crude reductionism fails to reflect the reality of health problems, disability or work as they are experienced by claimants. ? Incapacity Benefit is failing its claimants on two fronts. It has become a barrier to work as many claimants fear that taking steps towards employment will place their benefits at risk. It also fails to provide a decent income for people who are unable to work because of long-term health problems or disability. Kate Stanley and Dominic Maxwell call for a new benefits framework to create solid foundations for the long term. They set out practical policies to support people with health problems or disability get back to work and deliver a decent standard of living for those who can?t work.
