To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many part-time workers who earn £20,000 or more pro rata annually will be affected by the public sector pay freeze; and how many of these part-time workers are women.
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.
