A few weeks i raised this thread
the thread dealt with the OECD report that showed
This was battered into a Gender - Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development message that we should all do something to correct this imbalance.From earning 17 per cent more than men when they have no children, Irish women aged 25-44 go to taking home 14 per cent less in their pay packet when they have children, the report finds.
I note from the much vaunted "OECD - Better Life index" that ireland had the 2nd greatest gender inequality in the Work Life Balance section. in fact Irish Men are 6 times more likely to work long hours (50 hours plus) than Irish Women.
Wow... Hey maybe, just maybe- there is a link between the two - maybe Men working longer hours has lead to them getting better pay and better promotion opportunities.
But thats debateable - lets ACT NOW and make women work longer hours.
