Are men the new women?

"Childless" women, on average, earn more than men. Is there a need for remedial action by Govt.?!

Women in country's workforce paid 17pc more than men

It seems that one of the most enduring old chestnuts of the feminists, that women in the workplace are unfairly discriminated against in terms of pay, doesn't stand up to scrutiny. That should come as no surprise to those who've looked at the figures (regarding pay for men and women) in the US over the last ten years or so, but it is worth noting how much more women, on average, earn in the years before they start having kids. Also interesting is the reaction to the figures from the Policy Officer in the NWC!

It's the "knowledge economy". Manual labour or any work that involves your hands or brawn is no longer valued in western society. Nerds, homosexuals and childless women now dominate over the labourer.

Boardrooms are packed to the rafters with men (red blooded, meat eating, straight men), Senior managers and Directors are predominantly men, they may be educated (nerdy?), well groomed (homosexual?) and avoid bling and body ink, but they are far more ruthless and competitive than any labourer.

Give it a few years. The "bright young things" coming up to the corporate, legal and medical world are predominantly nerds, homesexuals and childless women. Another 2 decades and the board rooms will reflect this.

Also I never said homosexuals or nerds can't be ambitious and ruthless.

any evidence that most male leaving cert students opting to study medicine are gay?? Or you're just biased against Irish doctors having had a bad experience during your prostate exam? petunia

Anyway with the points requirement for medicine, I can't see how any non-nerds would get onto the courses...

We really should start promoting sex outside the house. Nature lovers delight!

The Government need to set up a Men's Ministry to ensure more equality. Men now only get 40% of University places. This is laying the grounds for a lifetime of disadvantage for many men.

Men who adopt home making and child rearing roles are seen by society as losers and suffer a loss of status for doing so as status flows from earning in Irish Society. Itelands values are all twisted.

Could it be that nerds and childless woman are adapting to the changing employment trends and the labourers aren't?

I have no idea why you include homosexuals in this. Sexual orientation isn't something that predicates or impedes success outside any discriminatory considerations that may exist within a company.

Yes the leaving cert does not suit many males.
