Quick reminder – today’s Pay Equity Faxathon Day, your chance to have a go at State Services Minister Tony Ryall for his decision to cancel two enquiries into pay equity for women.
According to Ryall, getting rid of gender discrmination would “generate an additional form of remuneration pressure that is unaffordable in the current economic and fiscal environment”.
Put simply, we have a government that thinks basic human rights aren’t worth paying for, and that in this recession it’s working women who should bear the brunt. We should all be insulted by that.
Head over to The Hand Mirror and do your bit.
