Madeline Nightingale (2019) Part-time employment and the gender gap in low pay for UK employees: what changed over the period 1996–2016?, Community, Work & Family, DOI: 10.1080/13668803.2019.1681938

This article assesses the contribution of part-time employment to the gender gap in low pay for UK employees 1996–2016. Over this period, there has been a sustained decline in the importance of part-time employment as a contributing factor to the gender gap in low pay. This is largely due to the fact that the link between part-time employment and low pay has become weaker over time (shifts in the gender composition of the part-time workforce are found to be less important). However, part-time work continues to play a crucial role in shaping persistent gender inequality in low pay for UK employees.
