BBC is actress Jodie Whittaker pay as much as male colleagues
The BBC is actress Jodie Whittaker the same pay for her role as the new Dr. Who as the current actor, Peter Capaldi.
That left the director-general of the broadcaster Tony Hall Thursday to The Evening Standard. The British public broadcaster is also under fire for the generous rewards of his employees.
The BBC has published Monday, the salaries of the top employees of the broadcaster, among them the directors and some toppresentatoren of the broadcaster. In the documents is to read that actor Peter Capaldi, between the 202.000 and 252.000 euros per year was given for the play of the famous Time Lord. Jodie Whittaker will be the same gage.
“We are trying the gap in the remuneration between men and women to reduce,” says Hall Thursday, pointing out that sixty percent of the top talent from the broadcasting now a woman is. Did acknowledge the broadcaster is still struggling with a diversiteitsprobleem: all 24 so-called top talents are blank. The Guardian calculated earlier that only 10 percent of the BBC presenters are non-white.
