    As far as I've seen you get paid for the job you do, and how good you are at it. Regardless of sex.

    e.g. trades (office or hands on), woolworths employees, personal trainers, teachers and if there are women willing to cut down trees I'm sure that they'd be getting the same rate.

    If there is some kind of statistic saying that women get paid less than men, could it be because certain types of jobs attract certain types of people?



    I agree

    I take it we are all in agreement that women are mean?

    I remember seeing stats that women doing the same job as men with the same experience were getting paid substantially less in Australia, can't be arsed going and looking for it but that kind of data is available if anyone cares enough.

    Yeh, but come on, what does the Prime Minister of Australia have to do?

    Ensure sufficient supplies of shrimp so there's always another one to throw on the barbie, stay neutral on the sticky Vegemite issue and look after Australia's only two exports - Home and Away and Neighbours.

    Even a woman could do that.

    USian and European statistics but I see no compelling reason why the Aussies are gonna buck the trend.

    Meanwhile, back here in the USA, the house Republicans just held a panel on women's reproductive health that consisted of ten men and noone else: http://www.democraticleader.gov/blog/?p=4796

    And the contraception policy of one of those men was (this is an actual quote from the panel) "Back in my day, contraception meant a woman held an aspirin between her knees and that was enough."

    Can you imagine how hard people like Battlefields would piss hither and yon if any congress held a panel to determine policy on men's reproductive health consisting of nothing but women, one of whom said that instead of condoms, men should tie a bunch of rubber bands around their dicks?

    White knighting is for weak beta males trying to get some of that leftover after I have been there, lol.

    Sang, my point is that women aren't mean enough. In this dog eat dog world either you be the predator or become the fucking prey. I know of the stats you are talking about, as one famous person once said (paraphrased) "there are three types of lies, little white lies, big black lies and statistics".

    You forgot their third and largest export: Austrailians.

    True, you'd have to close half the bars in London otherwise.

    This is a false stereotype. In Australia we do not, in fact, throw short people on the barbecue.
