Men suffer most in recession

But women are still paid less

Top three mobile application threats

Research from the Equality and Human Rights Commission found men are suffering more than women from the recession.

Young people are getting it worse than older people - the over-50s seem to dealing with the downturn better, maybe because they're prepared to be more flexible.

But if you're a disabled man with few qualifications, you're half as likely to be working now as in the 1970s. About 38 per cent of low-qualified disabled men are working now, compared to 77 per cent in the '70s.

Female employment has gone up three per cent since 1997 and black Caribbean women are more likely to be in full-time work than any other group of women.

The pay gap between men and women remains, even though women now outperform men at every level of education. The Commission found that progress in reducing the difference has all but stopped.

The difference is lowest for the under-30s but has gone up five-fold by the time workers reach 40.

Women workers aged 40 are paid on average 27 per cent less than 40-year-old men.

The numbers come from "How Fair is Britain" - the EHRC's three yearly report.
