    No no, you've got that all wrong. My friend is a HR manager for a huge company and has worked in other companies, and men get higher wages compared to women who have the SAME level of qualification and the same years of experience. That is why it is such a problem.

    As for feminist complaints - I for one would love to stop talking about feminism. But how can we stop? When there are ignorant people saying things like the above???


    [QUOTE=loislane2010;7450001]Just another Feminist complaint. Maybe just maybe, there wasnt any women suited to the job!!!!! Much like women getting paid less than men...maybe just maybe the men are more qualified and/or have spent more year in the job and have more experience. Lets not forget that most women take at least some part of the lives off to have children etc!!!!!! GRRR, this topic always gets me revved up!!!!![/QU

    Do you realise female graduates earn less than male graduates with the exact same qualifications - graduates, with no professional work experience yet? That's a different issue but couldn't brush past your comments.

    I agree with pp saying its not relevant, I want the best people for the job not people put in to be PC. I also agree that giving positions to people based on sex/race rather than ability is doing everyone a disservice.
    If people were discriminated against and barred from getting a seat because of race or sex though that would be completely wrong but I don't get that feeling here.
    I also think Julie Bishop is pretty awesome a bit off topic lol

    It sounds like he is combining similar portfolios. According to the AFR mental health is going to come under the Health portfolio instead of having its own portfolio as it did under Labor. I guess disability & aged could come under the same portfolio....Although that sounds like a HUGE amount of work for one minister to take on and I would be worried they wouldn't be able to give enough attention to/ advocate on behalf of each area of a large portfolio like that.

    More than 50% of uni graduates over the last 5 (or more?) years are female. I doubt females are 'less qualified'. There's other factors at play surely.

    I agree that the best people for the job should get the jobs. Although, I find it extremely unlikely that women aren't up to being ministers. This isn't the 1920s, women are every bit as educated and dare I say - clever - as men. I find it very, very telling that he could only find "one" woman who was good enough to be in his cabinet. Pfft.

    Just curious. How do you know that? Not saying I necessarily disagree with you all the time but having worked in law firms for over 20 years it does happen.

    Why do people find it so hard to believe?
