A mad mad pay not crazy … In the metropolis like La Runion, women are always less paid than men. Because of these pay differentials, it is as though the French worked "free" from today, Tuesday, November 6, 15:35 and until the end of the year. In the streets of Saint-Denis, these figures are shocking and are a surprise to most.
"We do the same and we are not paid the same, it is unfair," says Inna, who just gets out of her job at a shop in central Saint-Denis. Corinne is also scandalized: "Women work, sometimes occupy the same function as men and we are not paid the same?"
As every year, the feminist newsletter Les Glorieuses by Rebecca Amsellem reminds of the pay gap as calculated using Eurostat data and statistics. On average, women in France earn 15.2% less than men. This trolley is close to the European average, which is 16%. We are not good students … In Romania it is 5.2%, Italy 5.3%, Luxembourg 5.5% and Belgium 6.1%. "I'm falling down, I did not know, we're not talking enough about it," says Svrine.
The situation changes, very small steps. Last year this fateful date was fixed on November 3, 11:44 … We have thus served three small days … At this grade glorious note "we can wait 2168 to achieve equality". Long, tall, tall … "I suppose I'd be dead right now," responded Inna. "This is illegal!" Just answer Corinne. "But it's a long time, Irina breaks out, it's not fair, we're giving us to win less than men. We're not alike."
Any effort … or not
For the young woman, "they should fix these inequalities as soon as possible. Communes will be very well managed. France is far behind in many things, it should review its policy. It is not only Emmanuel Marcon of making efforts, it is also for the bosses. "They do, but small steps. Some companies begin to take into account the differences and introduce devices. But for transparency it's not won yet. For Inna, there is still too much taboo about the wages in France: "It's hidden: nobody talks about it, but we should all know that everyone should win the same thing." With equal skills, pay crazy. On the side of the state, sanctions are planned to punish peasants of the neve … For example, there is "name and shame" that you can translate by "naming and shame." It consists of publicly revealing a company's name to undermine its reputation. In September 2017, Marlne Schiappa called on the ten bad students for a sensitization campaign. Labor Minister Muriel Pnicaud also proposed a part in the Law "Professional Future" on Wage Capital. As of January 1, 2019, companies with more than 50 employees must measure the pay gap between men and women. They will have three years to correct them.
For uneven chances of hiring … it's another story. According to a survey by the Women's Foundation, yesterday, Monday, November 2, a woman applying for a job is considered male 22% less likely than a man, skills and qualifications, to be offered a job interview. Inviting tomorrow in Europe 1 yesterday, state secretary Marlne Schiappa believes that the anonymous CV is not the solution to combating this discrimination. "When we recruit someone, we need to know who this person is, so that's not something I remember," she said to Audrey Crespo-Mara's microphone.
"But … you have to mobilize, manifest, I do not know, do something!" exclaims Jeanne. At our level it is not difficult to commit. For example, flooding social networks with hashtag # 6novembre15h35. A petition also circulates on the Glorie website, calling on the government to put in place three major proposals: a paternity leave equivalent to maternity leave, profitability and a certificate of compulsory equality. They set up a calculator to calculate our missing profit for a year if we had been a man … How much do you cost?
