Can you imagine if all the women in the country went on strike at the same time? Well, IT might carry on relatively unperturbed. But the health system would grind to a halt, schools would be emptied, newspapers would go unwritten, and the lack of hairdressers would lead to the worst hair day this country had ever seen.
Er, yes, that is one of the reasons for the gender pay gap.
You\’ve just, in an article bemoaning its existence, given us one of the reasons for its existence.
Also there would be a lack of sandwiches.
Beds wouldn’t be made! Oh, noes!
Also, I work in IT, and my hairdresser is male.
I’d miss the barmaids…
Lets compare that to if all men went on strike – no food, no water, no sewage system, no coal, no oil, no petrol, no gas, no electric.
I can manage without education, newspapers and a haircut, and I’ll wait in line for whatever male doctors there are. How’s it looking on your side?
Calm down love and go and put the kettle on.
Clears up the wage gap argument nicely.
Score Two for JuliaM, but hairdressers would starve to death before the lack of them to cut my my hair caused my any problems other than aesthetic ones. The Grauniad has no sense of history – Harald Finehair never cut his hair until he had defeated all otyh claimants to his kingdom.
Most of my teachers were men, so a women’s strike would have meant I missed school meals – a welcome respite as, even at that age, I could cook better myself.
Engineering companies would notice there were fewer erratic drivers on the drive to work.
My nearest and dearest on strike…? Yes please.
