I suspect male pay will fall, with a high CHf is could easily be used as an excuse.

Men are expected to provide for their family / wife / kids and are expected to be chivalrous when out and about which comes at a price...

You don't see us complaning! :rolleyes:

So this is another example of equality when it's convenient! :msntongue:

I will support your campaign to remove these onerous social obligations from men once women are no longer making cents on the dollar of their male colleagues (or rappen on the CHF, in this case). :D

Resisted the groan- had a laugh- but now wearing a bit thin.
Fact is, women are still paid much less for the same job in most parts of the world, and for most of them, the reality is that when they get home after a hard day's work, the majority still have to take the brunt of childcare, cooking and all household tasks. Well done to those here who disagree with this statement because YOU DO your fair share.

Reminds me that I have to be become a manager so I could know what my colleagues earn...and then secretly envy them and work their butt off, so they could finally deserve that dam' wage.:D :rolleyes:

Re: Court win for woman paid 40% less than colleague
 
Look, I love despair.com parodies as much as the next person, but surely this sort of "humor" is not okay in 2011.

It's a system that rewards women, who bear the brunt of societies' "domestic" responsibilities, with fewer opportunities and less pay.

The real question here is why does women wanting equal pay for equal work threaten some insecure men to such an extent? What are you scared of?
