The goal: equalise pay between women and men, because women are being paid less. The method: reduce the pay of some of the lowest paid female workers (as well as some of the lowest paid male workers). We’re supposed to think it’s OK because some people’s pay is going up. Aaargh! I am more than a little bit appalled to see equalising pay used as a justification for this.
If you’d like to complain, you can do so here.
