WE ARE AT DEFCON ONE HERE PEOPLE. Stock your bunkers full of refried beans and get your affairs in order. The assault on the male race in Australia has begun, and it’s being spearheaded by one of the biggest banks in the fucking country.
Ok, yes, I’m exaggerating, but I am grateful to have yet another great big neon bulletin of evidence to point at when the Tumblr feminists start coming at me about ‘hurr muh inequality’.
ANZ, one of the biggest national banks in Australia, has decided to drop all pretense and flat out start giving their female employees more money for the same work under the guise of equality.
In Australia, your superannuation is how you save for your retirement. It’s similar to a 401k in the states. Your employer makes a compulsory contribution into your super fund which you can nominate, it’s about 9% on top of your pay every year that your employer has to put into a retirement fund for you.
ANZ is making an additional $500 contribution to superannuation annually… exclusively for female employees.
It has officially come to this. They don’t even have to PRETEND like they’re not being blatantly ‘selective’ (to put it kindly).
They made some good points about women living longer and generally being the ones who compromise on their career to raise a family, which is, by ANZ’s own admission, at their own fucking discretion. But the point is that at the compulsory level of 9.5% super contribution, a male minimum wage worker at an ANZ bank branch earning around 30,000 a year would have to earn $5236 more in the year by working the equivalent of TEN WEEK’S full time hours in a 52 week year to match the $500 contribution that ANZ is just giving its female employees. The more astute of our followers might recognize this as the complete fucking opposite of equality.
This is what happens when the corporate world becomes brainwashed by radical feminist morons parroting on over and over and over again about a wage gap that, and I cannot stress this enough, does not exist by any observable metric whatsoever.
You can all shove your wage gap up your festering bung holes.
