Joanna Williams: ‘Cut the crap about the gender pay gap’

It’s always worth reading articles from Joanna Williams, Education Editor of Spiked, and this one is no exception.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • A quick survey of Europe shows Italy having the lowest “pay gap” hovering around 5% for a decade. Among the highest Germany and the Netherlands over 20% . Yet Neighbourimg Belgium is only 9% . And why? Well Belgium and Italy have a full time workforce , male and female in work work full time. While Germany and Netherlands have the “one and a half ” model for couples with a big part time workforce , much like the UK with much the same results in pay. Sweden , feminist heaven,manages a dissapointimg 17%. Sweden has one of the worlds most sex segregated labour markets with public services a female sector and the private sector male. So The message is clear , you want equal pay ? Do the same work. Looking forward to Harriet banging on about the “Italian model” .
