    Media Release – The Australian Greens – 11 September 12

    The Coalition’s attempt to water down measures designed to improve women’s equity at work, by seeking to amend the government’s Equality Opportunity for Women at Work bill, is a worrying omen of things to come for women under an Abbott government, says Greens spokesperson for women Senator Lee Rhiannon (“Flexibility at work is new norm under equality laws,” SMH p 7 today:http://tinyurl.com/9m6jh4c).

    Never heard of it? Don’t believe it? Don’t know anyone who has experienced that? Common reactions.  But you can’t ignore facts supplied by the ABS this month that confirm the gap in the full time earnings of men and women. And no you can’t blame it on overtime either.  Equal Pay Day is Sunday, 2nd September. A day that draws attention to the gap and the $250 per week difference it makes.   Marilyn Forsythe, President of BPW Australia, admits that progress on this issue is frustratingly slow.

    Ahead of Equal Pay Day this Sunday, September 2nd, The Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (AIST) – the peak body for the $500 billion not-for-profit super sector – has called on the Government to prioritise policies that will close the growing gap in women’s retirement savings. AIST CEO Fiona Reynolds said ongoing pay inequity, combined with women’s lower participation rates in the workforce and the fact that women live longer than men, means that many Australian women would continue to struggle in retirement, with less than half the retirement savings of men. Closing the gender pay gap and introducing measures that compensate women for time out of the paid workforce to raise children and act as carers are critical steps to improving women’s retirement outcomes, Ms Reynolds said.  To read the full AIST Media Release open the following:  Media Release AIST EPD August 2012

    We already know that one third of small businesses are owned and operated by women; that small businesses employ significant numbers of women; that many already offer flexible work arrangements, local employment opportunities and are family friendly.  This survey is a follow up of small to medium employers to find out “What do smaller firm owner-managers think about equal pay and what would encourage smaller firm owner-managers to embed equal pay practice within their firm”.   To read the full flyer please open the following:
