Calgary ranks near the very bottom of the best cities in which to be a woman in Canada, a new study finds.
Calgary placed 23rd out of 25 of the country’s largest metropolitan areas. Victoria was tops while Windsor, Ont., was last. Despite having a premier that hails from the city, Edmonton doesn’t fare well either, at No. 22 on the list.
One can see this coming from a mile away:
“Women earn 65 per cent of what men earn in the city (full time and full year). The national average is closer to 70 per cent. That’s what’s causing the score to be so low.”
There are two major problems with "THE WAGE GAP":
- Supposedly sexist employers are paying women less money for the same jobs. In this case, 65 cents to a dollar. These employers hate profit so much that they're willing to hire males who are over 50% more expensive than females. These businesses can save boatloads of money by simply firing all the guys and hiring only women.
- It's against the law in Canada. Why don't these women who are paid significantly less than their male colleagues go to the government and file a complaint? If, indeed, they are being paid less for the same job (with the same qualifications and same seniority level and equal number of hours worked), then great; they'll win and the employer will have to pay them their just wages. Why do we have hundreds, thousands (millions?) of women in Canada who needlessly accept lower wages?
The reality is that the wage gap is a pile of horse shit. Women, especially married women, make different choices and work fewer hours than men. Thus, over the full year, women earn less. That's why we don't hear about them taking legal action over the mythical wage gap.
But what about the dreaded IVP?
McInturff also noted that Calgary doesn’t have a lot of women in elected office — two out of 14 city councillors and eight of 25 MLAs — or in senior management positions. A recent report produced by the Alberta Securities Commission and the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business concurred. It found the number of women named directors of companies in Alberta is increasing, but slowly. Of the 2,645 directors serving on boards of Alberta-based issuers, 190 — or 7.2 per cent — were female in 2016.
You do know the IVP, right? The Insufficient Vaginas Problem! Another bullshit issue for people with low IQ and too much time.
When it comes to carpenters, construction labor, truck drivers and elevator mechanics, women don't even represent 10% of such jobs. Why don't the SJWs whine about the IVP in these cases?
