I hope the men and women who continued to work were paid more.

Women strike...life carries on as normal.
If men did a strike the entire world would collapse overnight.
The majority of women ignored the calls for a strike and carried on as normal.

What a stupid strike. Is there a gap between the amount of money men make and the amount of money women make? Is some of this due to discrimination? Sure. Is most of it due to discrimination? No

For one thing women unionise far less than men and women go on strike far less than men.
Perfect example is the recent bin men Vs Dinner Ladies working for Birmingham City Council.
In the whole history of Dinner Ladies working for the council they have never gone on strike to improve their wages. Every time management said you are only getting 1% or even no wage rise for the next three years the dinner lady said "oh ok"
Bin men on the other hand have a long history of taking strike action, some would say at the drop of a hat, to improve their terms conditions and wage offers. 60 or 70 years of frequent strike action and facing down your employer in wage negotiations tends to have an effect on your wage level.

That's presumption. Are you saying male actors are in general more well known? I think you will find that hard to prove. And it isn't about jobs. It's about value placed on something.Last edited by Itsthe; 09-03-2018 at 19:41. Reason: TDA Post Edit

Don’t compare actors to a job, actors get paid based on how well known they are for example Jennifer Lawrence will get paid more than John boyega because shes bigger nothing to do with gender
