The pay gap between men and women in the United Kingdom is widening, a new study showed.

From August 2004 to August 2005, women earned 27 per cent less than their male counterparts, up from the previous year’s gap of 24 per cent.

This year’s study was compiled from salary data of 40,000 workers submitted to PayFinder.com.
