    Default International Womans Day and Ryanair

    Today is International Womans Day.
    A day when we should all reflect on the contribution women make to societies around the globe, and their struggle for equality, especially in backward third world countries.

    Oh, and in Ryanair.

    Why in Ryanair?
    Well, just for example, Ryanair employs thousands of female cabin crew, many of them economic refugees from eastern europe. They are employed on low waged temporary contracts with no right to unionisation and no protection under Irish Labour Laws thanks to their temporary status.

    They are further demeaned by a boss who promises free 'blow jobs' on his aircraft, and flogs soft porn calendars displaying these unfortunate women semi naked.

    But, it doesn't end at petty discrimination against low paid females.

    Ryanair employs over 2,000 pilots.
    Less than a dozen of them are women.

    Aer Lingus employs around 450 pilots, and 20% of them are female, including the Chief Pilot!

    Ryanair tells its female pilots who fall pregnant to get an abortion.
    Thats from first hand experience. Straight from the horses mouth.

    Any socially concious woman should consider all of the above when selecting her next flight.

    Desperation drives women to worse than taking their clothes off for the cameras.
    Ryanairs cabin crew have been known to be 'supplementing their income' in even more demeaning ways.

    Yeah - I have the receipts.

    Seriously though, O'Leary sacked a bunch of 'em about three years ago when it got a bit blatant.

    I have just flown from dublin to berlin flown by a female Aer Lingus pilot. Smooth flight (ok the landing was a bit of a bump) but I am safely at home. So well done Aer Lingus and Capt. Clodagh O'Farrell.

    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.
