Workplace Deaths All Men
7 deaths in a 2 week period in NZ-all men.
And none of these jobs (forestry, construction, farming) have been adjudged as worthy of a payrise. The danger alone in these occupations warrants financial acknowledgement.
Yet when caregivers were compared to prison officers (another dangerous occupation) they were deemed as being discriminated against.
The logic (or lack thereof), and blatant disregard for male workers is appalling. It cannot be justified giving caregivers a raise when there are so many other worthy, indispensable, highly-skilled people oriented occupations that get squat!
