Toys! I must have new toys!!!
Is that what "articles" are coming to now?
The Handsome Her cafe seeks to address the gender pay gap with a monthly optional surcharge for male customers.
The extra money collected is donated to support services for Aboriginal women.
trentski! I didn't know you had a degree in journalism!
There is a website that exists for the sole reason of saving you clicks on clickbait websites.
I like to think im working for the greater good.
When you have your own business you are entitled to push your pet social agenda if you want.
Customers will decide whether they want to buy-in or not.
During my career in the Public Service I had more than my fill of "Affirmative Action" - the discrimination you have when you want to counterbalance discrimination.
In my retirement I have had more than my fill of Political Correctness.
So I would tend to drink my coffee elsewhere.
Charging men more seems very sexist to me, can you imagine if a bunch of guys opened up a coffee shop charging women more than men? Imagine the outcry, it would be shut down on an instant.
It's illegal to pay someone less money due to their sex here in Australia, gender gap debunked.
Here's why I believe it's a myth in Australia.
Women historically choose to work in feilds that do not pay highly, or get degrees in feilds that don't pay as well.
Women also historically choose to work less hours, work part time to look after kids, and thus are not as likely to progress to higher positions in general due to these factor's.
If you work less hours, and choose to work in feilds that pay less, then obviously you will take home less money. No one is being paid less money for the same job due to sex though, as that is discrimination and highly illegal.
If women got paid less for the same job, why aren't business hiring a entire female work force to save millions of dollars?
It's a myth.
It may well be the case that (on average) women have different preferences to the average male, and may work in different fields/ roles etc (in fact this is stated quite clearly on the webpage cited by woodhouse). This does not logically imply that other forces have no effect on the pay gap (where it exists). The genuine gap most likely exists in negotiated packages at senior levels.
It is illegal to sell cannabis, methamphetamine, speed in a car, beat your wife/children or a stranger in the street, pay people "under the table" pay less than the minimum wage, just to name a few. I'm reassured that it doesn't happen in your country or mine because it is illegal.
Ummm no not a myth, friend and I worked on the same job doing the same thing and both of us have similar skill level. She made 5K less then I did, we had been in the role for similar amounts of time as well but I got pay rises every year during performance reviews and she didn't even though she worked as well as I did.
When I made mention of this to my boss I was given a bunch of excuses none of which made much difference. Eventually we both left and we are now making equal money in other places
The pay gap exists and it's still blatant but socially it is unacceptable to reveal your pay to others so it's not as apparent as it really should be
