Swiss women strike to demand equal pay

Swiss women strike to demand equal pay

Women across Switzerland have begun a day of demonstrations against what they say is the country’s unacceptably slow pace to equality. The protest comes 28 years after similar action saw half a million women take to the streets in 1991. Women in Switzerland earn on average 20 per cent less than men.

If women on average take up more lower paying jobs than men, spend less hours than men on the job, then women will logically have a lower average. As far as lower salary for the same job goes, there's almost no documentation i can find which supports that claim and regulatory bodies and laws for that already exist, so it's farting in the wind to whine about it. A better question to ask is how come women constitute 80% of consumer spending if they have a paygap problem as reported by Forbes. All in all, this Feminist protest is a continual act of misnomers, uninformed ignoramuses who don't know how to read the documentation they base their fallacies upon, and misinformation stemming from either illiteracy or dishonest agenda. All Feminists with education in Economics state that these protests are imbecilic, too bad Feminists with an education are as rare as phoenix feathers.

I doubt any/many of these perceived inequities have anything to do with discrimination/sexism against women.

"The data is clear. As you have attempted to flatten the financial differences between the sexes the more emphasized you've made the biological ones. It's very peculiar and not at all what [psychologists] thought would happen." ~Jordan Peterson

“Earn on average” —and therein lies the difference. That difference in the IS is accounted for almost completely by hours worked. So are they campaigning for more pay per hour?

Women should not even have the right to vote. When Switzerland changed this law, it was the beginning of their downfall. Women have a terrible record in their voting behavior in Swiss referendums. Women are not equal, they can never be equal. Humanity knew that for thousands of years. Now suddenly this generation believes to know everything better.

"Unacceptably slow pace to equality" It takes an educated ignorance to believe absolute equality is possible, given all the biological differences between the sexes. It will never be achieved, but I'm sure we'll hear the whining for the rest of eternity.

Surely Switzerland already has equal pay legislation like the rest of the developed world. The gender pay gap is related to types of employment and hours worked. Shut TF up angry feminazis.

EARN is the key word as always. They earn less because they work less and go into crappy jobs.
