They have made the system so complex with all the various tax rebates that are slowly withdrawn as your earnings rise that the PAYE system now can't calculate it correctly through the year. Its so rediculous that we have a "bump" at 50,000 pounds for people with children where there is a marginal taxation rate of 73% before it drops to 40% again at 60k

The big problem with active censoring is that you are more likely to be deemed responsible for what's published.

Unfortunately that's the sort of thing that Gerry's women in IT a bad name. There are very few women in the department I work in but all are very competent. Of you get the number up to 20% with women with the wrong skills or low ability then people will start to think "women are no good". This is not a sexist thing, the same would happen if your company had a mandate to recruit 20% of the workforce with surnames beginning with 'r'.

You will have a head crash on your private pack.
