Women working for free for the rest of the year
Wednesday 18 November 2009
Women subsidise the economy by nearly $4 billion a year!
New Zealand women earn at least 12% less (in average hourly earnings) than men. It’s as if from 18 November until the end of the year women are working for free.
Nearly 1 million people miss out on almost $4,000 million in wages every year – just because they are women.
Members of the Pay Equity Coalition (disguised as debt collectors) today unveiled a giant invoice for $4billion, made out to the Minister of Women’s Affairs, the Minister of Labour and Business New Zealand. Payment can be made by making a public commitment to ending gender pay inequity – or in cash.
