The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has 18,349 part-time workers earning £20,000 or more (pro rata) of whom 16,417 are female.

However the pay freeze covers employees who earn above £21,000. DWP has 16,184 employees who work part-time and earn more than £21,000 per annum (pro rata) and are therefore affected by the pay freeze. 14,424 of these employees are female. Of all part-time employees, 42% of women and 43% of men working part time are affected by the pay freeze.
