Ministry for Women’s Affairs and their Dodgy Calculations
The previous post Minimum Wage and Feminist Entitlement opens up the discussion about how feminist monetary policy is driving men backwards into a slave culture.
Now let’s have a look at the good work The Ministry of Women’s Affairs does to help out.
Without getting into the pros and cons of part-time work, we do have a healthy part-time employment industry. It suits some people, often women who have been stay-at-home mothers, who don’t need or want a full time job. Like all jobs some pay well and some don’t; some part time workers are paid better than others.
[If you’re a separated man with children, you’re not allowed to work part time – you’ll be made to pay child support based on an assessment of your potential income]
Particular industries are well known for part time work, hospitality for example; which is also well known for paying low wages.
When it comes to hospitality the girls get the bulk of these jobs. They’re lucky in that respect; it is a good source of work in the evening for students, and it’s also a good training ground for those wanting to travel. It has it place.
Now, what Women’s Affairs does is this.
Rather than looking at part-time work as an employment situation, they take all workers on minimum wage, including the all part time workers and they ‘estimate’ (and I’m working off their 2012 figures here) that 60% of minimum-wage workers are women, and this is not acceptable because there should be more men on minimum wage, surely.
But there already are. If you take away all those thousands of students and lifestyle part timers there are already more men on minimum wage and this is set to get worse.
Then they start playing with averages and they ‘estimate’ (by including all the poor disadvantaged girls in part time work) that the average wage of women is only 87% of that of men.
Do you see the con here?
If you took away the thousands of part time hospitality workers alone, this would make a huge difference to the percentage – some credible analysis may put it over 100% already, it’s now 2014.
This ministry receives millions of dollars to provide ‘official advice’ on how financially disadvantaged women are, and why would they want to tell the truth and see their ministry closed down and lose their own jobs because they’ve become redundant in women’s ‘struggle for wage parity’ with men.
Yet, as MOWA freely admit, their primary focus is trying to help women catch up to men in their pay packets.
We have political parties basing their policy decisions on feminist propaganda and tax-funded miscalculations that only serve to reduce men’s financial equity in society, and participation in society.
New Zealand media are dining out on MPs personal waste of tax payer funds at the moment.
Will they be questioning the wasted tax-payers funds going into the Ministry of Women’s Affairs anytime soon?
It’s election year isn’t?
[ … and the media did report on the proposal to resurrect the moa.]
Why isn’t the existence of this dinosaur ministry being questioned?
