Companies should employ more women, even if they aren’t good enough.

This is not what “Equality Minister” Harriet Harman actually said. But she is advocating “positive discrimination”, or “affirmative action”, as Americans call it. And positive discrimination means that you favour a weaker candidate who is black or female over a stronger candidate who is white or male. Positive discrimination favours the inferior….

It is as well for Miss Harman that she is “Equalities Minister”, an absurd non-job funded by the taxpayer. Were she in business and having to earn her keep, her incompetence at even basic logical thinking would ensure rapid bankruptcy. A woman working part-time earns on average 40 per cent less per hour than a man working full-time. This is because full-time jobs, for both men and women, are better paid than part-time jobs, and men are more likely to be in full-time work. There is nothing discriminatory about this. If a woman were paid less per hour for exactly the same job, as used to be the case, then this would be discriminatory. Moreover, women often choose less demanding jobs than men because of family responsibilities, or indeed because they want a balanced life. This is a reasonable choice, but why should it be subsidised by those who work longer and harder? Narrowing pay differentials between hard jobs and easier jobs means that those who make personal sacrifices must subsidise those who do not.

Harman vows to force through ‘true equality’ in the workplace, as bosses call plan ‘a nightmare’

Critics said the law would effectively reintroduce discrimination to the workplace by allowing people to be chosen purely by their race or gender.

David Frost, of the British Chambers of Commerce, said: ‘This could end up being a bureaucratic nightmare. The intention was to simplify the law. Increasing the complexity of tendering for public contracts and putting more emphasis on positive action is unlikely to make life simpler.’

But Miss Harman said: ‘There might be controversy, but you don’t get progress if there isn’t a push forward. Women will be able to see they are paid less than men and they will be able to complain and challenge it.

‘Entrenched discrimination is allowed to persist. It’s the British thing of not talking about pay.’

Sex discrimination is the basis of civilization. It should not be merely legal, but actively encouraged. It should not be made profitable for women to clog up the workplace, holding jobs they are unwilling and unable to do, instead of staying home looking after their children and cooking healthy food for their families.

Perhaps in the interests of “fairness” we could make exceptions for widows and confirmed lesbians, but straight women of childbearing age have no business in the workplace.
