A “target” is a “quota” by any other name

A PC “target” is a “quota” by any other name

Excellence trashed in lieu of gender quotas now affectionately called targets.

Here we go again. The director of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, Libby Lyons should do a lot better for the money she pockets, not earns, and that would be to learn about failed social policies in recent history. Marxism for starters a monumental failure because people are not all equal. The quota policy in the US for hiring blacks and Latinos. A massive failure that caused social division which spawned hatred. The annals of history are strewn with do-gooder failures. A vital criteria for  employers not at all mentioned by the obtuse Libby Lyons is, shock-horror Ms Lyons, which person is best for that job? A benchmark of acumen obviously not applied at the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.

The director of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency has urged employers to set targets for men working part-time. Libby Lyons told the ABC’s National Wrap program “it’s not difficult” to create a working environment where men can take more responsibility for caring for families at home.

Set targets for men working part-time to help promote women, gender equality body says

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency found that women are three times more likely to work part time than men.
The latest ABS figures show women constitute 68.6 per cent of all part-time employees and 36.8 per cent of all full-time employees.
“We all need to support men to work flexibly. We need to encourage men to work flexibly,” Ms Lyons said.
The head of the statutory agency also said the normalisation of flexible work environments would help the “promotion of women”.
“The value that we place on the work that women traditionally do needs to be challenged,” she said.
“We need to challenge our thinking, we need to challenge the way that we have worked traditionally and the value that we have placed on the jobs that women have traditionally done.”
Federal Women’s Minister Kelly O’Dwyer raised the issue during a speech earlier this year, warning it “needs to change”.
“There’s a pretty strong culture in this country that says that women are the ones that need the flexibility, not men, and I simply challenge that,” Ms O’Dwyer said.

To achieve this, Ms Lyons suggested companies put the onus on senior managers and “set some targets around the take-up of flexible work for men”.
“When men apply to work flexibly, it’s often the middle managers because they’re feeling pressures of KPIs, and thinking people have to be sitting at their desk to do their work,” she said.
“We need to remove that decision making from them. They don’t feel comfortable in making those decisions.”
“If we can take those decisions out of the hands of middle managers so they’re not feeling that added responsibility, if we provide them with support and training in to how to manage flexible workplaces, then we are absolutely giving permission for men to work flexibly,” she said.

    These ratbags should be put on a remote island somewhere where they can whinge to one another about perceived victimisation and let the majority get on with normal life.

    The golden rule should be to employee the best person for the job.

      Amen. Best thing would be to de-fund these official Whining Agencies. They’re not needed and the overpaid morons who staff them are parasites.

    I work 2 jobs part time and hate it. My children are grown men now and don’t need me as a father. But at 63 no one wants to hire a full time male with vast experience. Women are supposedly more empathetic than men but yet most women as CEOs are hugely involved in implementing the slavery of mankind by slavishly following the NWO. More so than men. The fact is that the NWO has been greatly accelerated by women’s rights. And now these bitches Lyons & O’Dryer suggest that women are perfect and that it is men who need to do the adjusting. Obviously these dykes have never held a productive job. Women have different reasons than men for working, and these bitch dikes are a huge part of the problem. It is because women bear children that they do not participate in work like men do. Now, how many men here have seen their wives wash the car, fix the washer, cut grass, and clean the leaves from the gutter? Certainly L&O have never done any such work.

    I hardly see men with time on their hands, cleaning the bathroom sweeping the floors doing the washing, preparing the evening meal ,picking the kids up from school and driving them to the sports events, friends birthday parties, and the weekly or daily shop for bread and milk. Good luck with that.

    I worked in an environment where there was a constant see-sawing of male to female mangers ratio, when the ratio was about 50/50 the joint worked well but once the female ratio went up up a significant amount the shit started hitting the fan and it wasn’t because staff didn’t accept them in that role, but rather they started turning on each other with petty squabbles and cat fights. When the male ratio went up, things also were more calm with less disruptive squabbles and disunity. Let the natural order of things take the initiative rather than forced quotas to satisfy some utopian PC dream.

      Very true BV. The sheer idiocy of this ideology of feminists is laughable. But what is behind it is the concern for me. Its not actually about equality. Its about domination – and the taking away of decisions (and rule) of men in society and the destruction of the family unit (neo-marxism).With family destroyed humans become isolated – mental illness and crime rises dramatically (we see this with fatherless boys) – and the STATE then takes over (more easily) as a legitimate intercessor. The State can them manipulate society how they see fit. The church, the family and manliness are being attacked ruthlessly as all three are in the way of the State taking over. Strong men are a danger to the State. This is also why homosexual men are desired. They are equivalent to women – and more easily manipulated.

      I have just taken on management of a state. The existing order was older females in the culture of the company. Instead of getting on with the job, the first reaction was tearful backstabbing and gossip. A time wasting, money wasting PC ‘reconciliation’ was required. It simply does not work.

        All very true, DB8R. I’ve read MANY studies which show fairly persuasively that there really is a reason that women tend (generally) to be more emotional and men tend) generally to be more practical. Something to do with both human qualities being needed – but not in the same one person.

    “needs to be challenged”….is a phrase often used in the above article.

    “Needs to be challenged” is PC/Leftard speech for “we don’t agree with it (because it does not fit in with our PC/Left Agenda) and so we’re going to fight against it until we win!”

      When is this insanity going to stop! Male and female are different creatures. Why wont they accept fact?

  • Clarion Call 16/04/2018, 10:10 am

    Pull the fingers out of the dykes and let the torrent of fair-play wash away this ridiculous Marxist crap. These delusional creeps live on another planet somewhere other than here. In the olden days they used to burn them at the stake.

    What happened to the BEST PERSON for the job???????

    • DT 16/04/2018, 3:46 pm

      The not best persons decided to grab their jobs by stealth and political correctness campaigns.

  • angry 16/04/2018, 2:52 pm

    Political Correctness (def.) –
    a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the
    proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the
    clean end.

    • Neville 17/04/2018, 1:45 am

      … or polish one.
