Are you sure want my opinion on this, Yash Geryani? Well, you did ask.
I honestly think this is the kind of sexist BS that keeps women’s salaries 30% (on average) lower than men’s.
Say what you want about feelings and harmony and whatever other thing “feminists” want to bring up – telling certain women that its ok for them to take a day off – and continue to be paid for it – while other people who are perfectly fine have to go to work and make up for your being too weak (yes, too weak) to hold your own place on the team is asinine.
If you can’t do the work, you shouldn’t get paid. And yes, I put my money where my mouth is on that.
I’m all about equal pay for equal work. The day I see equal work consistently happening I suspect we’ll have a much smaller pay gap.
But when this stupid stuff happens that day keeps getting further out.
