How many women work for no pay?

How many women work for no pay?

Today I heard a report on Absolute Radio saying about a lady Tracy said to be in part time work -making her owno statement on air that she was 'hardly paid'- money as linked to 'husband' or something. They put round she was 'single parent', then she referred to husband with some respect.

Did they tell her to say 'single parent' to get sympathy, as more socially conformist? Rare they say 'husband' these days?

Is she working and not being paid? I put on one article how I heard a Barnsley lady, about 2006, in an Adult ed centre, said companies- including NHS offices- sacked her three times for no reason but discrimination. She was supported in her view by a tutor saying she was not offensive. A lawyer, (she said to group in full hearing of all in a small room), had offered her a chance to try court for about £2000 compen but I never heard she went. They made her stressed, in need of doctor and benefit office sympathy. Although not exactly seriously ill.

I myself was treated in a small way similarly by MOD offices in about 1991, saying they were liking me, and then slandering me- with the tactic they try, to lie about someone innocent, with words 'attitude problems' -for no reason. I think the other woman in the centre in mor recent years had the same flung at her for her longer term office work. Not good practice. All breaking golden rule that laws apply to all and they must treat everyone the same under laws that forbid bad references. People are not there to torture. Yet they still do it to more moral old fashioned ones.

Is the girl called Tracy victim of the same? She sounded more traditional. Not open to male offers. Do they think such workers intuit they are not to be paid? What would culture and pay be like if laws were made to make employers and trainers see innocent or more traditional people in a different light with fair practice? Would such have better lives? What level of discrim is it, in clear light of day and in light of fair practices?

A lad told me in Barnsley hospice shop in 2002 he was being played with at a young age, taunted by social workers for not sleeping about and being stripped of dole money until his legs could collapse. Heartless. He got odd jobs since and depended on family and mates.

Some are so ruthless they say innocent people do not deserve doctors and are fit to whore, like whoring nuns and monks.

I would call it the 'fiver a week' treatment. Cutthroat. No discrim workers to stop them behaving like naughty kids, destroying adult lives.

And people as when hearing of attack victims cannot understand indigence and suffering if someone does not keep social victims fed and cared for on the quiet. People can be selfish and just feel it is what life does to some, and just sense them there as usual.

Will it end? It has gone on for years. Undercover cultural assassination. The feeling that there is a certain type of adult you can still DO IT TO. It has to stop. But doubt it will....
