More stupidity from our government that the average person sees on the news or reads and goes, der, well okay the government must be right. The government want to give women more super because men retire with more super than females. Wow! How can that be? The government better do some research. They have to do research?
My dad retired with all his super account. One reason I can suggest is because my mother didn’t work (didn’t have to back then). The reason could also be because it was in my father’s name you dumb fucking government. Another reason could be because women take time out to have children etc. That’s right they know that bit so we will give women super whilst they’re on maternity leave. WTF? On a side note my father has passed away so my mother got the entire super anyway. The research is just a cover because they are going to do it anyway. The story seems to suggest that women will be getting more benefits than men. With the new whinge about the pay gender gap it seems we’re going from one extreme to the other.
The PAY gender gap is to do with men getting more pay than women. What???? Men get more pay? So a 26 year old female checkout operator is on less than a 26 year old male checkout operator. But that’s illegal.
Oh I see now. The gap is actually, say, a 26 year old female checkout operator getting less than a 26 year old male builder or getting less than a 26 year old male mine worker (a 26 year old female builder or miner still get the same as their male counterparts). You see there is a law in place that will not let businesses discriminate against male or female workers doing the SAME job in an industry. Reverse this situation and one finds that female miners get more than male checkout operators. But that’s okay apparently.
So why do they say there is a gender pay gap? Same reason they want to up superannuation contributions. It creates more money in the markets and banking system for the big corporations to gamble on derivatives and futures contracts. In addition, more money in means more money for the banks to take from your account when a bailout by the banks is needed.
This from a speech by Mathias Cormann to the IMF;
“We encourage the fund (IMF) to continue to improve diversity in its workforce, which is also critical to its legitimacy and for delivering on its global mandate”.
Huh? The IMF has a global mandate? Who made them boss of the world? They also think the world is in a recovery from 2007. LOLS.
