But enough about Hariet Harman, what do we think about her latest brainchild?
Many employers will be made to reveal how much male staff are paid compared with their female colleagues, under a bill being published later.
If this is to force employers to publish on a case by case basis then it will be hugely expensive. If it's just an average then it is totally pointless.
Ministers also want to tackle the fact that - 40 years after the introduction of the Equal Pay Act - women in the UK still earn on average 23% less per hour than men.
Yeah, yeah - but they also work shorter hours than men, tend to do mor part time work than men, take longer and more frequent career breaks than men and choose different and less financially rewarding career paths to men.
As a statistic it is next to useless. The only way you could make a comparison is to compare a man and a woman of the same age doing the same job for the same company for the same length of time with the same educational background and career achievements - and that will cost an awful lot of money to research and publish.
The law is not intended to address inequality - it is intended to act as a stick to bash men with. Just like it's instigator it is nasty, pointless and totally unnecessary.
