Mercian at AntiMisandry brought this latest perpetuation of the Gender Pay Gap MYTH to my attention, so now I’ll debunk this stupid Women’s Day nonsense.
Here we go again. This is a campaign originating from the evil misandric feminist Fawcett Society.
It mindlessly repeats the same old ‘pay inequality’ myths that have been doing the rounds (and subsequently being proven false) for years. They keep pushing it because it is a cornerstone of the feminists’ poor wimmin ideology.
Anyone who has actually worked in a real job and not the imaginary ones that these feminists seemed to have gotten their statistics from, knows this isn’t true.
I have never come across a woman actually getting paid less, who has the same experience, makes the same choices, and does the same job and work as a man.
It’s a ridiculous assumption. If women work for less than men, why employ men?
Anyway, back to the poor oppressed women. All of these sites spouting this ‘lets kiss women’s arse’s incase we get labelled as misogynsts’ are relying on this report, published by the Fawcett Society. (It’s a PDF so you may want to right click and download it.)
Hysterically entitled ‘4000 Cheaper!’ it is a blisteringly obvious propaganda piece, full of bright colours and exclamation marks. Most people won’t bother reading it, but I have so you don’t have to waste your time. Let’s have a brief look through shall we?
Skipping the first few pages as it is just victimising nonsense.
Page 4. FAQ
Q. Is the pay gap simply women and men being paid differently for the same job?
A. Some researchers have estimated that straight-forward discrimination accounts for up to 40% of the pay gap. It’s a problem hidden by pay secrecy – if you don’t know what your colleagues are paid, you won’t know whether you’re being paid unfairly. But there are two other important factors. Firstly, jobs traditionally done by women are paid less. Second there’s the lack of flexibility in the workplace.
Some researchers? Like who? And so what, it’s a bloody estimate. It doesn’t actually MEAN ANYTHING. I can ‘estimate’ that 90% of rape claims by women are false, doesn’t automatically make it true and therefore worth putting in a campaign booklet does it?
Jobs traditionally done by women are paid less? No. Leave ‘traditionally’ out of it. Women aren’t traditional. Women CHOOSE to do these jobs, correct? These jobs pay less because:
1. The job is low risk.
2. Lower qualifications are needed.
3. They are more likely to offer part-time options.
4. There is high demand for the jobs.
Women are choosing lower paid jobs. That’s their problem, not yours. Want more money? Work on an oil rig, or putting up scaffolding. No one is stopping women getting jobs on a fishing trawler. By the way, 95% of work related deaths are men. I think men are oppressed and more women should be dying in the name of ‘equality’. At least, that’s what I’d think if I had a feminist ‘brain’.
Lack of flexibiliy just means businesses aren’t catering to what women want enough. That is, more pay for less work. Just like with the Wimbledon situation. Female tennis players get the same prize money as the male players. How wonderful and equal you’d think…
Difference is, women play up to 3 sets, men up to 5. I’ve written about this here.
Don’t count on anyone stepping up to protect men’s pay or rights though. Moving on.
Q. “Why are jobs traditionally done by women paid less?”
I’ve explained this. Still, I’ll show what they’ve put.
A. “As women have traditionally done some of this work unpaid at home, the skills were seen as ‘natural’ and so undervalued. Women continue to take these jobs partly because they tend to be flexible and local and so fit with caring responsibilities.”
See? This report is revealing that these are women’s decisions. Caring responsibilities means babies. If a woman wants to get pregnant, that’s her choice, not mine or yours or anyone elses, why should the rest of the workforce work extra for her? Get stuffed you spoilt bitch.
Q. “Would it make a difference if all workplaces were more flexible?”
A. “Yes. The UK has a long hours working culture and senior jobs are seldom available on a flexible basis. That means that if you have caring responsibilities – as women are more likely to – it’s almost impossible to compete on an equal basis. Mothers often work below their skill level because lower skilled jobs are more likely to give them the flexibility to balance work and home.”
Like I’ve already said right? Women want to be able to do whatever they like and still get paid the same as men who put the hours and dedication in. This is absolutely typical of feminism. Notice this subtle dig, ‘mothers often work below their skill level‘, the poor ‘ikkle things. So what?
Q. “Is the pay gap a solvable problem or just a fact of life?”
A. “Yes, it’s solvable! Other EU countries such as Belgium and Sweden have taken stronger measures and seen pay gaps close more quickly than the UK.”
Sweden is a feminist hellhole full of manginas. The feminist party got so up itself that it actually tried to create a Man Tax. Yes, that means they wanted to tax men specifically for violence against women. But that’s a whole other subject.
Q. “Aren’t the current laws enough?”
A. “No. Equal pay law is incredibly complicated and inconsistent. It puts the burden on individual women to take action, rather than enabling women to stand together or requiring employers to act.”
Note the phrasing. ‘Puts the burden on women to take action‘. Yes, it puts the burden on women to actually have to do jobs they might not like. Something men have been doing for centuries. You wanted to be treated ‘equally’ to men didn’t you?
‘Requiring employers to act’ says it all. They want to reorganise the entire structure of business in Britain to cater to wimmins’ needs. Anything but admit that women get paid less because they bloody do less.
Q. “Isn’t the UK Government already acting?”
A. “The Government has introduced some good measures, most notably the minimum wage and better rights to flexible working. But its current equal pay plan, devised by its Women and Work Commission, focuses too much on helping the next generation of women break into higher-paid male-dominated professions.”
Minimum wage wasn’t about women, and why does the government have a Women and Work Commission? Where is the Men’s Commission? There should be one considering the majority of the governments tax income is from men’s pay checks. ‘Equality’ my evil oppressive male arse.
So there you have it, the rest of the report is fluff. Feel free to read it.
In closing I’ll say this.
The law doesn’t discriminate against women. Businesses don’t discriminate against women. They do discriminate against employees that may not be dedicated enough, or may disrupt the workers’ morale.
If a woman wants to start a job, then get pregnant. Why should the business pay? That means the other staff, women included, have to make up for it. This is moviing towards communism with every step.
Women make choices, men make choices. Those choices reflect on the world around you. Women, grow up and bloody well deal with it. All those newspapers and sites kissing Fawcett’s arse should be ashamed of themselves. What happened to people thinking? Think about it! Think about those women in your workplace who only want flexible working, while you’re busting your arse working all the hours in order climb your career ladder.
Why should someone who hasn’t done what you have done, sacrificed what you have done, get the same benefits and pay as you? Men are discriminated against all through life. Scoff your face all you like, it’s TRUE.
Want evidence? I’ll prove it, just you wait.
