A Gentleman – hatchet-faced trout
Our thanks to James for this garbage in The Guardian. My sole reason for doing this blog piece is that it was written by Amanda Gentleman . Hell, even Kate Smurfwit could extract humour from a woman who’s A Gentleman. An extract:
The disparities in some of the most high-profile companies have already been well aired. The hourly rate for women at easyJet is 45% lower that of their male colleagues, and 89% of the best-paid staff are men, while 68.9% of the worst-paid are women. These differences have been shrugged off as simply reflecting the fact that cabin crew tend to be women and pilots tend to be men, as if that makes everything OK… [J4MB emphasis]
But pluck almost any organisation at random and there is a similar picture. At Abingdon Flooring, on an industrial estate near Newport, 86% of the best-paid employees are men. At Rowe Farming in Doddington, 94.9% of the best-paid staff are men.
