Gonna be tough to measure the wage gap now:


However I bet those with no gender or They/Their on the resume will end up paid less, except those hired by government.

Nah. We’ve failed two incorporation votes and there won’t be another anytime soon.

If it was up to me I'd go the chaotic way and make everyone's income public.

According to Statistics Canada, in 2022 women in B.C. earned 17 per cent less than men. Average hourly wages for men were $35.50 while women earned an average wage of $29.53 per hour, with the gap increasing for Indigenous, racialized and newcomer women.

That must include some pretty high salaries to raise the average to those figures.  Where's my piece of this pie?

The province has introduced new legislation requiring employers to include salary ranges on job postings, and banning employers from asking applicants for pay history information.

In an effort to help close the gender pay gap in the province, employers will also not be allowed to punish employees who disclose their pay to co-workers or potential job applicants.

Makes sense to me! too bad the bottom limit though is companies with 50 employees.

I just knew Horgan was secretly into coal.





Former B.C. premier John Horgan joins board of coal business


John Horgan is joining the board of Elk Valley Resources, an enterprise that is in the process of being spun off from Vancouver-based Teck Resources
“I’ve got other things that I am going to be working on that may be more to the taste of those who would kick up some dust, but the people that are kicking up dust, oftentimes, kick it up for the sake of kicking it up,” Mr. Horgan said in an interview.
“I don’t have a lot of time any more, none in fact, for public comment on my world view, or what I am doing with my time. I don’t want to be snippy about it, but there are others that are making policy decisions.”

Going to need to burn a lot of coal to power the electric grid. It’s OK they can just say it’s green and it is.
