No Small Change: The Economic Potential of Closing the Gender Pay Gap. [SP Paper 179, 6th Report (Session 5)]
An Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee report argues that the Scottish Government could use devolved powers to help close the gender pay gap and boost Scotland's economy. Recommendations include: making care a Scottish Government priority sector; developing a new, appropriately resourced programme for people returning to work; and ensuring that all roles within the Scottish Government, its agencies, and the Scottish Parliament are advertised as flexible, agile or part-time, unless there is a business reason not to do so.http://www.parliament.scot/S5_EconomyJobsFairWork/Reports/EJFWS052017R06.pdf
