harleyquinnical: Cue arguments saying equal pay for equal work is now some kind of commie plot.
docilej: So all the men are going get pay cuts ?
ZAZ: We have had the same law in the United States for a long time, with one difference. The new law in Iceland says companies are presumed guilty. The law in the United States says most companies are presumed innocent. Government contractors have to do some extra work to convince the government that they comply with official policy.
Weatherkiss: Yeah, but Iceland is just another socialist hellhole just like Venezuela.
Sailing Starflower: Came to say "Communists," but I see it's been covered.
iheartscotch: harleyquinnical: Cue arguments saying equal pay for equal work is now some kind of commie plot.TBH, my first thought was "There are women in Iceland besides Bjork?"
The_Sponge: But is it illegal to pay women more than men?/Obviously, I'm thinking of Iceland's adult film industry.

cherryl taggart: And it gets worse if you are in an employment at will state like GA. It is part of employee manuals regularly that even discussing salaries is grounds for termination.
BigNumber12: So, asking for a raise will be automatically declined unless the company can afford to give all of your peers the same raise? That's handy... for the company.
BonoboJeezus: But you can still pay Poles half what Icelanders get. Iceland has a strong economy, but its fed mostly by government-encouraged tourism, and Polish immigration that has augmented their native population of 300,000 with a compliant worker class.
IrishBlunder: docilej: So all the men are going get pay cuts ?And paternity leave benefits, one would presume.
Harry Freakstorm: [img.fark.net image 374x135][View Full Size image _x_]Now she makes the same as me at Schroeinikvalkuraburger even though I am a trained yak horn fryer and she is a Schroeinikvalkuraburger Assembler Level II. Once, I let her operate the yak horn fryer and the Firerunbrangurtners were called to our location.
bighairyguy: Weatherkiss: Yeah, but Iceland is just another socialist hellhole just like Venezuela.Except that Venezuela actually has an economy.
cybrwzrd: So should a man who has 10 years experience make the same as a woman with 5 years of experience in the same job?
