How The WORK Gap Affects Women

Written by Jasmin

As more and more evidence gets exposed on the pay gap myth, feminists rather embarrassingly try to convince their blind faithful around the world that they are being paid less for the same work. International Women’s Day, 2016 saw much of this in action. Women were seen holding placards making demands for ‘equal pay’ in their workplace. But equal to what?Screen Shot 2016-03-13 at 10.10.15 am

The wage gap argument by feminists is used to say there is a wage gap between men and women, usually claimed to be 70% of a mans wage. With so many feminists deeply embedded in unions they know equal pay is already law in Australia and so they make an industrial issue out to be a pay gap issue by conflating the stories. These placards seen here are not consistent with their true agenda, which is better pay for child care workers.

This week was very telling with the Victorian Fire Brigade unable to meet a 50% quota of female recruits proving lack of interest and not inherent sexism.  Instead of re allocating those remaining jobs to the high demand of male recruits, the applications were closed leaving 60 men unable to even apply. It seems those who are pushing the feminist agenda in Australian unions would rather have unemployed men than positions filled by those interested and capable in the job.  Could they possibly have an agenda to have LESS men in the work force?

If male dominated industries are where the money is at, why aren’t the unionists calling for more men in childcare, teaching and nursing? I mean, if they cared about the industry and they genuinely believe that the money goes where the men go, it’s simple logic. However it seems they don’t care about the industry as much as they care about women being able to work less and get paid more.

Let me show you where the WORK gap comes in. Unlike the pay gap, the work gap is where one would naturally expect to find a difference in income. Even my teenage daughter knows the more she works, the more she gets paid.

The percentage of Australian women who work 40 hours or more per week sits at 32%



On the other hand, we have 65% of Australian men shown as working more than 40 hours per week.


I’m no rocket scientist, but you can’t argue with logic and maths.

Yes, the more hours you work the more you will get paid therefore the more hours you work over your lifetime, the more money you will earn over your lifetime. *sigh* Do we really have to explain this over and over?

Just as an aside, it’s funny that the wage gap theorists don’t factor in women getting 70% after divorce rather than a more equitable 50% . I guess that’s a whole other conversation.

Feminist unionists are becoming quite adept at undermining male unionists. Any issue seen as affecting men such as men’s experience of domestic violence and this being a contributing factor in the high rates of suicide prevalent with tradesmen and mining industries are frequently dismissed.

In some groups of which I am a member I have witnessed men discussing men’s issues only to be labelled misogynists and silenced if they dare to push against the feminist narrative of gendered violence.  This bullying is rife and it has become acceptable and commonplace to see sexist remarks by vocal women.

The empathy gap is these times is disturbingly apparent in our society and genuinely frightening because many of the very women who demand more money to work in childcare also share negative, at times hateful attitudes toward males and are able to exert enormous influence over our sons.  This lack of empathy is also forcing many more men into silence, and with the awful rise in male suicide this is something we can ill afford to do.

12494934_10205930937735859_7761310236368359215_nUnions are now driven by a small majority of feminists which is how they have managed to tie in this campaign (in the image to the right)  that sexism leads to the pay gap which leads to rape, then murder……

Wait, whaaaaat?

Just because someone says something, it doesn’t make it true.

This campaign has no evidence to back up it’s claims because it’s pure propaganda, nothing more, nothing less. Anyone who believes that sexist jokes lead to murder are quite frankly moronic.


The work gap exists because women work less then men. Women still prefer to work part time or more flexible jobs which are often lower paying fields, and they still prefer to stay home to raise the children.

So where does all this leave us? Well, women are now dominating union conversations in Australia and in typical fascist form they are using propaganda through media and attempting to silence the dissenters.

The pay gap is a myth. The work gap is not.
