Reader’s Comment of the Day: Gender pay gap cashes in on the victim mentality


In response to Belinda Brown: Gender pay gap explained. Men work longer hours in tough jobs, earthenware wrote:

“Encouraging them to demand more from companies, as Education Secretary Nicky Morgan is doing”

What’s worrying about this is that it seems that the government actually believe in the gender pay gap. Either that or it’s just a cynical attempt to cash in on the victim mentality that feminists are encouraging in women.

At best it’s window-dressing based on ignorance, at worst it’s an acceptance of a destructive force rather than combating it. A choice between bad or worse (or worser as Mrs Morgan would probably say).

Hands up if you voted for this because you thought Ed Miliband was incompetent?
