In Australia (and I assume the rest of the Western world are similar) women spend 25 hours per week on housework while men spend only 15 hours. Women have 32 hours paid employment per week while men average 39 hours.
So in total men work 54 hours, women work 57. Do you think the man should pay the woman the 3 hours more each week out of their greater pay packet?
That seems fair, and cheap! At present I get paid more than my wife, but I pay the Mortgage, the Rates, Power and Gas bills: if I paid her 3 hours wages, and we then split all the household costs, I'd be way better off, on paper. Of course it is all nonsense as the household income is unchanged and all the household costs come out of the household income. If the Government was to pay women the full 25 hours, even at the minimum wage of $20 per hour, that would be $500 more income, presumably paid as reduced taxation. But wait: it would be sexist not to pay the male for his 15 hours, so there's another $300 for the family. I wonder if the feminists considered that?
Now how does the Government as employer measure the amount of work done and the quality of work? Some houses are so clean they look like show-homes, others look like a slum exploded. Should they both get paid the same?
Peak Nonsense is a good description of the proposal...
