Gender equality: a quota on time

    It's a single sentence. A sentence that has weight because it stands where a country, a state, a community commits, how it wants to regulate its coexistence: in Constitution. Article 8 (3) holds that "men and women are entitled to equal pay for work of equivalent value".

    But sentence is ignored. From politics, from economy.

    Because Switzerland is a men's state.

    Since 1981, equality article has been in Constitution. Since 1996, country has had a gender Equality Act, which states that "workers cannot be discriminated against directly or indirectly because of ir gender." But a woman in Switzerland still deserves an average of 18 percent less than a man – just because she is a woman.

    And this is supposed to stay that way.

    At end of February, Council (39 men, 7 women) debated a change in Equality Act. It stipulates that companies with more than 100 employees should have ir pay structure checked by an independent authority every four years and should communicate internally. Without penalties, without fines.

    But stand councils did not want to know about it. They returned business to Commission, with order that y should examine alternatives. It would be preferable to Council that companies should control mselves.

    With his decision, Council justifies ongoing constitutional breach, cements gender inequality, and reveals how little he understands of economics.

    In Switzerland, equal rights are still regarded as a left-over project. As concerns of feminists who want to stranglehold economy and impose ir administrative work.

    Behind phrase "equal pay for work of equal value" is an almost ökonomistische idea: that of optimal allocation of resources.

    This article comes from time No. 11/2018. Here you can read entire output.

    Companies that treat men and women alike, who choose and pay for ir employees according to ir talents, ir training, ir experience – y would ensure that as many workers as possible will do job best suited to ir skills and thus Achieve highest possible value added. Especially since intellectual elite in Switzerland is now female: 18 percent of all women graduate from higher education, among men it is only 14 percent. Neverless, women earned, in 2013, an average of 5,814 francs a month, whereas men 7,614 francs. and 677 francs of this difference cannot be explained by increased part-time of women or by experience gap that arises in absence of maternity leave.

    It is pure discrimination.

    In Switzerland, a woman receives 6,000 to 7,000 francs too little pay per year. They and ir employers pay too little for AHV and pension fund, y pay less taxes, and ir purchasing power is reduced by 7.7 billion francs.

    But in Switzerland, economics is scarce when it comes to discussing gender equality. It's much more about power. To power of men.

    Of course, this would not be a Swiss man. Also no council. In debate y stressed importance of equality, yes, re is a need for action, no, nobody wants to delay business, y are alone in matter, and y deserve a better solution than proposed one. A SVP parliamentarian mocked about wage analyses: "That would be about same as if I had to undergo an investigation to determine wher sooner or later perhaps I might suffer from hair loss."

    Men who, on every occasion, conjure up competition, want to continue to benefit from ir gender-monopoly position, which has given m state that y want to preserve before regulating economy.

    Until 1971 Swiss did not have right to vote.

    By 1988 men were " head of family", y decided by law about residence, fortune and gave ir name to both women and children.

    By 2005, men were compensated for ir military service, but women had to insure mselves against loss of income during maternity.

    Women have been disadvantaged in both inheritance and social security law.
