What do women do worse to charge less for the same job? (15/02/2018)

A few days ago we listened in an interview on the radio to our President of the Government saying: "Let's not get involved in that ..." between the difference in salaries between men and women for the same work.

Also, as if that were not enough, the leader of Citizens in Catalonia said not to attend the strike on March 8 because she alluded to ideological aspects in their demands ... The same aspects that have made her not support the withdrawal of Francoist symbols, not repeal the sun tax or be in favor of health co-payments.

Women suffer double inequality.

On the one hand, during the working life, if we charge different (less for the same work), we quote less.

On the other hand, and in relation to the first inequality, if we quote less, we will have a lower pension when we retire.

This week that many organizations begin the acts of women that will end on March 8 and that the PSOE will also realize, we demand a commitment in the measures that change the reality.

Acts of denunciation and visibility are necessary; awareness of the discrimination suffered by women must be created.

But, more important is to legislate to change reality.

Next week a proposal for Equal Pay Law is presented at the Congress of Deputies that aims to improve the existing one in 2007. Not because 2007 was bad, but because these 6 long years of Popular Party government have been enough to demolish a fairer country project.

In the Region of Murcia, it is not, nor is it expected.

Almost 23 years of governments of the right and have never stopped to look in the middle of the Region.

As a result, the Socialist Party of the Region of Murcia has worked on a motion through which a Strategic Plan for Equal Opportunities between men and women will be drawn up.

It works from a reverse logic, within the powers that can assume the Autonomous Community puts the batteries to urge the National Government Council and the Government to support the Law presented by the PSOE Equal Pay.

We do not want to talk about equality as a hollow word, that resonates without meaning.

When we speak of equality, we want to refer to the justice that must be imposed between the two halves of society.

Why do women charge less than men?

What do they do worse to charge less?

It is a matter of common sense, society has to start the recovery that paralyzed these last 7 years.

Concrete measures for specific situations.

It is useless to always preach the same slogans if we do not work with measures that modify reality.

You have to be in it and the first step is to legislate to get a fundamental aspect, that equal work has equal salary.
