BAME Pay Gap Report

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to release biannually information on the Ethnic Minority Pay Gap within Brighton and Hove City Council's employees. The median pay gap to be calculated by comparing the difference in pay between the median pay of White British employees of all genders and the median pay of BAME employees of all genders.

1. In 2018, the pay gap between white British workers and those from ethnic minorities remained wide last year.
2. The median per hour pay of those of Pakistani and Bangladeshi origin was £10 and £9.60 respectively, marking a pay gap of as much as 20 per cent with white British.
3. According to the ONS calculation, UK-born black African employees were paid 7.7 per cent less than UK-born white British with similar occupation and education characteristics.
