The Welsh Government says an increase in NHS pay in Wales shows a commitment to the living wage.
Welsh Women Suffer In-Work Poverty
It's claimed that earning less than the living wage is now the "norm" for women who have part-time jobs
A study from the TUC has found more than half in some areas of Wales suffer in-work poverty.
Women in Flintshire are worse off with around 60% being paid less than the living wage last year.
In Blaenau Gwent this was the case for 59.1%, with 53.3% in Conwy, 51.5% in Bridgend and 48.3% on Anglesey.
In the capital, just 37.9% of women were earning less.
The figures come just a week after it was revealed there's a gender pay gap of nearly £4000 in management jobs in the UK.
Natasha Davies from Chwarae Teg - a charity calling for equality in the workplace - says women face a lot of barriers:
"Women are more likely to work in low-paid part-time roles in areas like care, catering and administration."
"There's a perception that we're carers first and earners second".
The TUC says many women feel "trapped" and that they can't obtain a basic standard of living.
Natasha tells Heart employers need to understand that they'll benefit if workers are given equal pay:
"They can recruit, retain and develop staff drawn from the widest possible talent pool and provide an optimum, gender-balanced workforce"
"Closing the pay gap should be top priority and employers play a key role in achieving this".
Welsh politicians say plans for a new prison in Port Talbot are encouraging - but people living nearby need to be considered.
The Secretary of State for Wales says the UK Government is determined to get a brexit deal that works for everyone.
A deal's signed in Swansea which it's hoped will help create thousands of jobs across South West Wales.
