Happy Equal Pay Day: The (other) holiday based on a lie

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews


Did you forget to celebrate Equal Pay Day? You hater!

It's the latest fake corporate-progressive virtue signalling excuse to increase everyone's sense of victimhood — and it's based on the complete lie known as the "gender pay gap."

Andrew when it comes to pipeline , base rate is applied no matter if you are man or woman.

Andrew Stephenson WRONG, Facebook has to honor their user agreements like they demand from their users, this is not a part of it. That agreement is 2 sided. And if companies can do what they want , then they can pay women less RIGHT????
How does your opinion that some posts were not facts make a FACT CHECKER valid? And the pay gap is because of personal choices. The courts bias against men is VERY REAL ,that is oppression.

Andrew Stephenson your love of censorship and state control over our lives is sickening. EVERYONE should be worried about crap like the proposal in California. Who the F*CK are they to decide what is allowed to be said or what opinion you can have? And do not call it fact checking as it is nothing but CONTROL and silencing views they do not like. "

Facebook is a company, it can do what it wants.

“Views” are not “facts”, and nobody should be passing off factually inaccurate views as truth. I can point out a number of errors, even at the Rebel, where often objectively unsupportable opinions are being passed off as facts.

My Fiance makes more than me , my mom made more than my dad pretty much the second she got into the workforce after they were married. I used to make more money than my Fiance when i did pipeline was because i worked far more hours. This pay gap is BS. "

The plural of anecdotes is not data. Yes, there are exceptions to the rule, but in aggregate, women are paid less than men. It’s not 30 or more – the actual figure’s about 5-10% when all the confounding variables are factored out – but it’s still quite real.

Andrew Stephenson that is BS. And who will fact check? Some left wing drone? LMAO! Your victimhood is in your mind like usual. But since you think only certain people can protest after lecturing Rebel members about how everyone has that right , i am not too surprised.

Your example of the non-existence of the pay gap is because someone worked more hours they got paid more, and thus it doen’t exist? That’s overly simplistic.

Oh, wait, the gender pay gap still exists even when you look at per-hour to deal with that.

No wonder the Rebel is worried about Calilfornia’s fact-checking law proposal.

Female porn stars make four to five times what their male counterparts (“phrasing” …Archer)

Where is the equity in that?

As a public service trade unionist I represented grievances for, negotiated for, and walked picket lines for pay equity. I was in a female dominated pay classification which I was stuck in because of “employment equity” and I figured just because I was stuck doing women’s work was no reason for me to put up with being underpaid. The Liberals fought us in court for years with feminist lawyers on both sides of the arguement. Finally Rosie Abella ruled in our favour and the Liberals looted our pension fund in order to come up with the retroactive payments that mostly got clawed back at rich man tax rates. Feminist personnel officer made us wait for the payments until every account was calculated to the penny rather than treating overtime separately…I remember….none of my Liberal former collegues seem to.
