Luckily, I'm leaving this part-time job since I finally found a full-time gig but even though I'm leaving in a week, the principle still bothers me. Am I the only one who sees a double standard here? If I was a woman and they were men it would be a case of sexism, no?
Many , many double standards in the workplace and out.
Quanity of hours worked, sick days used, and personal days off differencial (on average) between men and women is gigantic.
Pay gap has decreased dramatically but is still there in some cases. But in many (not all) cases it should be there, because of what I just said.
