    ◎在英國BBC引人注目的性別薪酬差距新聞於2017年爆發並引發全英國各地的憤怒之後,最近英國立法強制擁有超過250名員工的公司必須披露薪酬差距。自那時起,已有超過9000家公司遵循,日前英國索尼音樂、英國華納音樂和英國環球音樂也遵循法規公布。音樂行業的性別工資差距是非常真實的,甚至比許多人想像的還要糟,而三大主流唱片公司公布的英國性別薪資差距數據,讓人一窺女性在音樂行業中所受到的貶抑。

    ◎英國索尼音樂的薪資差距中位數為4.6%,平均薪資差距為22.7%,獎金薪資平均差距為45%,中位數為0.2%。報告顯示,2017年獲得獎金的女性(75.3%)和男性(74.3%)的比例幾乎相等,儘管英國索尼的359名員工中有45%獲得了獎金,但最高級職位中女性人數較少顯著影響了該公司的數據。而索尼音樂表示計劃在「包容性環境」中實施學習計劃,並支持在職父母。

    ◎英國華納音樂的薪資差距中位數為49%,平均薪資差距為21%,獎金薪資平均差距為82%,中位數為44%。報告顯示,有74%的女性獲得獎金,而男性則為85%。報告中也指出,雖然女性佔英國華納音樂勞動力的42%,但只有16%擔任領導職位。而華納音樂表示會列為「緊急優先事項」,計劃透過實際措施幫助更多女性在公司內晉升,包括由員工領導的工作小組負責處理多元化、列出新的行為準則、讓候選人才庫更多元化,並修改育兒假政策。

    ◎英國環球音樂的薪資差距中位數為16.7%,平均薪資差距為29.8%,獎金薪資平均差距為49.2%,中位數為30.4%。報告顯示,2017年獲得獎金的男性和女性比例相等(74%),但在最高薪酬水平的四分位數中,男性的比例為70%,明顯優於女性的30%。

    The music industry's gender pay back is very real and even worse than many thought. The three major labels today released gender pay gap figures for the UK, this week and they offer a bleak snapshot of how women are devalued in the music industry.

    Recent legislation that forces UK companies with more than 250 employees to reveal pay disparities was enforced after news of the BBC's striking gender pay gap broke in 2017 and sparked outrage across the country. Since then, more than 9,000 companies have complied, and now Sony Music UK, Warner Music UK, and Universal Music UK are following suit.

    According to MusicWeek, here's how the numbers break down:

    Sony Music UK

    Median pay gap: 4.6%

    Mean pay gap: 22.7%

    Bonus pay gap: 45% (mean) and 0.2% (median)

    What the report revealed: While the report indicated that a nearly equal proportion of women (75.3%) and men (74.3%) received bonuses in 2017, despite making up 45% of Sony's 359 employees, having fewer women in the most senior roles has impacted the company's findings significantly.

    What they've pledged: Sony says it plans to implement learning programmes in an "inclusive environment" and support working parents.

    Warner Music UK

    Median pay gap: 49%

    Mean pay gap:21%

    Bonus pay gap: 82% (mean) and 44% (median)

    What the report revealed: The report indicated that proportionately 74% of women received bonuses while that number was 85% for men. It was also noted that while women comprise 42% of Warner Music UK's workforce, only 16% are in leadership roles.

    What they've pledged: Warner plans to make it an "urgent priority" to help more women progress through the company by implementing measures that include employee-led working groups tasked with tackling diversity, a new code of conduct, more diverse candidate pools, and revised parental leave policies.

    Universal Music UK

    Median pay gap: 16.7%

    Mean pay gap:29.8%

    Bonus pay gap: 30.4% (median) and 49.2% (mean)

    What the report revealed: While the report indicates that an equal proportion of men and women (74%) received bonus pay in 2017, in the top pay band quartile the gender split is 70%-30% in favor of men.

    The reports follow a January announcement by Carrie Gracie, China editor for the BBC, that she was leaving her position to protest unequal pay at the organization. The BBC responded by reducing the salaries of several of its prominent male journalists. That was preceded by a taped conversation between one of those journalists, John Humphrys, host of BBC Radio 4 Today, and a colleague that appeared to make light of Gracie's concerns.
