    Aww, that’s cute! A politician trying to exploit ethical ‘problems’. The gender pay gap is quite complex and accounts for more than just prejudice. About 80% more in terms of variables. Arbitrary pay rises or cuts on the basis of equality do not work. Jordon B Peterson has some good lectures on it online. Anyway, until you’re all grown up how about we leave the politics to the adults.

    You are address the issue falsely, It’s illegal to pay less based on sex, this is a child care issue over a working life time not a per annum basis and can equally affect a male choosing to be the primary carer.
