The fuck? Firefighters fucking risk their LIVES helping people and all receptionists do is fucking sit at a table. You should be happy that the pay gap is only that far apart.

It's satire.

Thank fucking God

As a receptionist I support this message.

I'm 99% sure that's a parody/comedy Twitter account. Comedian Andrew Doyle(?) runs it I think

It is, that's why I shared it. I thought it was obvious. It's the most famous parody account.

Construction Workers (US)

99%

average salary: $38,738

RECEPTIONISTS (US)

95% female

Average Salary: $35,920

And you still think the gender pay gap is a myth?

The wage gap is based on averages. A lot of women like being stay at home moms which is still perfectly fine but unfortunately they don’t make any money doing it. :(

Two different jobs get two different salaries.

I know, it's almost like there's a market or something!

Back in the 80's, they made a lot of ballyhoo over "comparable worth", basically claiming receptionists added equivalent value to what construction workers did, so they should be payed the same.

Of course this was rubbish, and its failure to gain permanent traction indicates that pretty much everyone outside the academy knew it was rubbish. At some level, I guess people know that market prices do not directly track value, that "worth" is subjective and situational, and that there is a premium for work fewer people are able to do.

Sitting behind a desk at a dentist office verses fighting fires and putting your life on the line for others. HMMMMM 🤔🤔 I guess you're right. Let's pay the firefighter much more since he's oh I don't know, RISKING HIS LIFE!!!!

Dude, are you from the Balkans. I'm from Croatia and thought because of the username.

[–]anonymous_30010 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

What about those remaining 4% firefighters if they are females what is their pay?

[–]4Runnner0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

The US do not pay their firefighter well... that’s atrocious.

[–]Uno_Cinco0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Two completely different jobs.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
