star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>There are 230,000-260,000 female workers with multiple jobs who have total earnings above the automatic enrolment earnings trigger (£10,000 in 2014/15). Just 40,000-50,000 of these are ineligible for automatic enrollment because they earn less than the earnings trigger in any one of their jobs. A majority of these workers have earnings above the lower limit of the automatic enrolment qualifying earnings band (£5,772 in 2014/15) in at least one job and so can opt-in to a pension scheme with a mandatory contribution from their employer.
