Country teachers rally for more pay
Nina-Marie O’Sullivan, National Secretary of Students’ Union at Colgate University in Ontario, calls it a shame that the federal government hasn’t taken action to close the wage gap.
“This really does come as a surprise to me,” she said at 바카라사이트a recent media roundtable.
“If we’re going to address the gender pay gap by providing more equal funding and by increasing women’s representation at everything from the boardroom to the classroom and in education, we’ve got to look at getting women involved in those organizations that are really shaping people’s lives. I’ve got to say this with some sadness for our girls.”
She says there are ways Canada is trying to address that lack of participation in schools and is working to put more women on professional boards to ensure they have the opportunity to do their jobs fairly and that “anybody from a female employer should be able to feel confident.”
And she says it’s important to remember women are still underpaid.
“It’s very difficult for women to be able 바카라to be employed, especially in the private sector,” O’Sullivan said. “And the reason for this imbalance is that there’s discrimination when it comes t우리카지노o wages by the employer, because women are not considered equal.”
A recent analysis by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives found that the gap in pay is wide enough that “a single woman can earn twice as much as her male co-workers” over a 24-hour workweek, according to a statement from the organization.
When the CPPA first began working on the gender pay gap issue, the group was met with resistance from some workers who accused it of looking for “cheap shots.”
But as it has grown, the group has had to fight back against claims the gap is the result of women only participating in labour force participation or simply being paid less than their male counterparts.
“The reality is that as women have moved into education, they have become more engaged in the labour force and have less difficulty than men in finding work,” CPPA National Director of Education, Education Equity and Equity Rachel Hulme told The Huffington Post Canada earlier this year. “These kinds of disparities mean we can’t continue to rely on men as the primary wage earners when a woman will take over those roles when a family needs that work.”
At the same time, Hulme believes there are things the public can do for gender parity to help the gap remain.
