Women in Ireland working for free from today until 31 December

https://www.rte.ie/news/business/201...king-for-free/

Quote:
Irish women are "working for free" for the rest of the year, according to Dress for Success Dublin (DfSD), the charity behind the #WorkEqual campaign.

According to DfSD, today marks the date which women effectively stop earning, relative to men, because of the gender pay gap.
This is disgraceful! When are the patriarchy going to stop the ridiculous gender stereotyping of women and pay them the same as men!!

Lol that's a mythical anylayesed spectrum of gender proportional bull****...

There they go turning people against each other, the tide's turning and sadly it's forgotten to take these SJW's and victim's out with it....

Absolute bleached whales the lot of em

How long are they gonna beat this drum before climbing down?

It’s a myth.

If women worked for 70% of what men do (or whatever they claim) and women are just as capable as men (they are), then why don’t greedy companies who care about nothing but their bottom line not just hire exclusively women?

If the accountants in most companies could slash their wage costs by 30% at a stroke they’d bite your hand off.

Presumably the reason that doesn’t happen is also a patriarchal conspiracy

Women also do more housework - which is UNPAID!

88.7% of women cook and / or do housework every day, compared with just 48% of men.
Tell me Batrathox... how much housework do YOU do??

We as a society need to start valuing women's contributions more. If patriarchal capitalist system is broken then government need to step in and pay a subsidy to women to make up the gap a finally recognize the work they do.

So you're saying that what comes naturally is worthy of an allowance.

Oh my gosh...paid for looking after your own kid's and keeping your pad tidy..

What's next pay fisherman who catch and release....

Oh stop wearing a dress...

I do ALL the housework, I also do about 80% of the cooking and also the maintenance and garden in the home. Herself works hard and long hours (as do i, but I am home earlier)

I also have a mate who does absolutely everything in the house who also works full time while herself lounges and lunches (I would have divorced her).

This BS outlined above is divisive, simple thing, if you do not like the job and feel you are being treated differently to a man in the same job, take action... don’t just make stupid claims...

I’m not talking about housework I’m talking about in employment - they act is if if a man and woman are doing the same job the woman will be paid 30% less. Which is illegal. It’s simply untrue.

Nah, they're still earning, just at the same 13% disadvantage as they have been at all year. Silly morketing ploy!

Can we drag any woman in off the street to work for us for free. Will they lift up the rug and hoover or will they work around it. This OP isn't giving enough information on these women that have to work for free until the new year.

And a for free working woman shouldn't just be for Christmas now until the new year.

The kind of person who believes this nonsense is not worthy of more than minimum wage.

Take for example, my wife who is on scale (same pay as her male colleagues) who has said she'd not work as a Principal (rather than principle ) for any amount of money, when did she stop getting paid this year?
