Special ‘Mum’ Lanes & Free Pink Gerbera Flowers at Morrisons on Mother’s Day

This Sunday Morrisons will reserve one or two lanes for mums in all of its 491 stores nationwide.
The checkouts will be staffed by specially selected assistants, with the aim to make the experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.
In addition, Morrisons staff will help entertain children while mum’s are packing away shopping.
There will also be 30,000 pink Gerbera flowers handed out at stores to mum’s visiting stores.
Anna Lane, from Morrisons, said: “The reality of Mother’s Day is that some mums end up doing lots of chores!

Maybe paying female employees equal pay would be a better way for Morrisons (and all the other supermarkets etc) to celebrate how special mothers are?

Why should a person sitting at a till get the same pay as someone out lifting heavy boxes etc in the warehouse. If women are doing the same work as a man then yes pay them the same.

According to USDAW
"Checkouts In a busy supermarket, several tonnes of goods will be passed through a single checkout in an average day. The physical effort for staff can cause strain injuries to the back, shoulders and arms. Under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, employers have a duty to assess all manual tasks which can cause injury and to reduce the risk to the lowest level they can"
So yes I think they should all get the same - whether you lift it coming in or going out.

What value do you put on customer relations? I accept that there's more physical work in a warehouse but there's zero involvement with customers.

Surely the most important point in relation to gender here is women can choose either job just like men, and both do just that.

The law says it's indirect discrimination because the majority of shop staff are female and warehouse staff are mostly men.

So women in stores would have their pay increased? What about the men in the SAME job would they be paid less? Is this not real gender inequality?

They do get equal pay
What are you talking about

If your doing the same hours, you have the same experience, you've been in the job the same time
Your the same age, etc you'll get the same wage


Don't bring up that feminist bs because all of it is not true

Males usually have better wages not because of "discrimination"

It's because man do more risky jobs, do more hours, usually aim higher
Example a women maybe a nurse, teacher
Hairdresser while a man will go I different path and will aim to be police officer. Pilot. Firefighter. Doctor. Etc

If they actually did get paid less for the same work/experiance/age which they don't then shops wouldn't hire men at all

This has been debunked multiple times
I cba explaining again, To simply put it the "wage gap" is the average earning of men and women. It's nothing to do with the same job, same hours, nothing to do with discrimination

Also another feminist lie is "The Pink Tax" the arguement of feminists is that "women's shavers/deodorant, lotion, shampoo cost more then men's because they are sexist blah blah"

Nope lol, it's simply because different quality, ingredients, scents, etc

Men and women have different skin so women need more gentle high quality razors and better smelling and less harsh shampoo/deodorant/lotion/etc
