... You do know that this question was regarding women who DID work right? Also its not that uncommon for large parts of humanity taking a day or so off (like on Christmas for example).
@Soteris Yes. I knew that. But what, exactly, is the point of not working like this? If anything it makes women seem less important, because the most important jobs cannot strike. (of course many women are, in fact, in some of those jobs - i doubt many doctors skipped their shift at the hospital for instance). The entire thing is a farce because in general 'work must be done'. Some women took a holiday today, well fine, but that's... not a strike. If you simply don't show up to show your employer you're valuable? Clearly they think you're valuable already. That's why they give you money to show up. If they didn't think you were important, they wouldn't pay you!
Of course doctors and people who otherwise provide vital services have much more to consider (Although it has not stopped people from striking before in those professions).Also just because you have a job and is getting paid does not mean you are being treated fairly. You are losing all nuances by simplifying it to such a basic level.
@Soteris Nuance and mass protest really can't work together. What was the direct point of this protest?
@Soteris I agree with you
The reason for this protest/strike was probably to rise awareness as well as promote dialogue and considering we are talking about it here.. it was successful.
Thanks for MHO
Yeah you do
No you dont.
We agreed I did
Yeah sure why not holiday pay for everybody
We could just have the government print a lot of money, and all share it. Then we'll all be rich!
@0112358 yeah that's a great idea!! Then everybody will be happy!
Men's day is in November I think
@0112358 print money will mess up the economy
@applesandoranges22 yes I'm aware ;)But simply saying various people should get paid more is exactly the same thing. Changing pay just changes how the pie gets divided. It doesn't mean there's more pie.
@0112358 oh so basically communism lol. Some people work harder for their pay, and saying that the pie should be divided equal is not right. A oil rig worker deserves his high pay, and a sanitary worker deserves his. A surgeon who preforms surgery deserves his pay, just like a physicists deserves his.
@applesandoranges22 my print money was a joke. But many people suggest things that are equivalent. Increasing nominal salaries of some groups redistributes resources it doesn't create more.
@0112358 and that is why, rich people pay more taxes :)
@applesandoranges22 my question was a joke too I didn't expect it to get this serious lool
hey it happens lol
This question was a joke haha and thanks :)
Our office had hired a couple of temps to do some data entry on a critical project. One of them didn't come in yesterday. At 9 when she was a no-show the group supervisor (not me) called the temp agency to see if anything was wrong and they hadn't heard from her either. The agency sent someone else and that person now has the women's job for the duration. Just a guess but unless she comes up with a viable reason for skipping out on us, she won't get another assignment either.
I'm not looking to start a fight, but how do you mean that? Other than being to take time off to have babies, what privileges do woman have that men don't?
@LindsayRB91rds you have the privilege to vote without being forced to sign up for a draft. you have the privilege to get financial aid without being forced to sign up for a draft. you have homeless shelter programs and domestic abuse programs at your availability nation wide, if you find yourself in trouble in court you may get a lighter sentence.. In physical jobs such as the army or police force the expectations are much lower but to be PC more money is spent on covering for this. In hard labor jobs when a women cannot keep up a man is often the one who is moved to a different sector or demoted. That last one happened to me and its really common as you can search this up and see how many people talk about it. I was 18, working in stock and had a girl partner, we were not meeting a certain deadline with stocking because I was helping her because she was falling behind, and I was held accountable because the company did not want to look like women haters.
@applesandoranges22 The draft (this applies to the U. S.) is an excellent point. I had forgotten about that since there hasn't been a draft in my lifetime. I will disagree on the 'physical' jobs lowering standards. I never tried to be a fireman but I couldn't pass the physical. I fully disagree with any company, ever, lowering the bar on physical requirements to suit women. Jobs that require safety and stamina should only be done by people who have the strength.It sucks that in your job you got blamed because the company didn't want to look bad. That was wrong and if I had been the partner that made you look bad, I would have set the record straight. At least in Mass, you should be aware that the availability of help in the way of shelters applies to men as well as women. I'm not directly sure what happens, but men in an abusive relationship can get shelter hep to get away from an abusive partner. So that was certainly true historically but I hope it's changing.
@LindsayRB91rds the programs for women greatly overshadow the ones that males have if there are even any out there. The problem is, these expenses are covered for women and a lot of the time men are not included. Look at all the homeless people out on the street and tell me who the majority are male? the predicated stat is at 75% male. Why didn't a shelter accept them? Another thing is, the education does not favor men as we drop out at alarming rates and some of us dont even go to college due to the way things are set up. Now the whole lowering standards thing is true. In the military 90% of males pass, and to many women were failing it at one point so the test were lowered. Then, a lot of women also got injured so a lot of expenses had to cover that as we dont already spend money on stupid things like a flying jet with tank missiles. By the way the women I worked with did take responsibility, but they let her stay and now she is on the job with another guy. I moved from the warehouse to
@LindsayRB91rds stocking shelves in a store
@applesandoranges22 The homeless issues comes up a lot in Boston, and studies keep showing that the men (more often than women) don't want to stay in a homeless shelter. I have worked soup kitchens and I see more men than women there - and I always thought that it was because the homeless women in shelters get fed there.The military may well have had standards lowered, but I'd really hope we aren't putting these brave people at risk by doing that. Warfare is so much more than standing on the field and fighting now that there should be room for people of all abilities - but in the end the strongest warriors out there will be the guys. That's just reality.Education and the dropout rate is a whole other topic that really peeves me. We let the students in schools down terribly. Maybe it's the boys more than the girls, but the system is hardly working at all. :(
@LindsayRB91rds dont get me wrong, there are some great armies out there with females in it like the libyan or kurd rebels who fought against isis and what not. I think we are not doing it the right way. The same with education and the homeless shelters. they just dont care about the people who are being let down.
@applesandoranges22 I'm not suggesting that women can't be as brave or braver than men. It is a fact that most men have better stamina and strength than most women. On a battlefield those are really useful attributes and we can't compromise a force's efficacy by being PC. How our military is used though, is often pretty messed up. I blame that on leadership and strategy and certainly not on the brave soldiers.And yes, I definitely hate how the money we put into compassionate causes gets wasted. We're letting down people who need us. To be fair, not all of the homeless want help and as long as they aren't a danger to anyone I can respect that too. I can't fully understand it, but I can respect it.
