for example, There are 3.900 carpenters in Sweden, of these only 40 of them are women. Among nanny, is the reverse circumstances, by 88.000 is only 9.000 men. Just as Kallifatides writes in his article is the pay gap between men and women is not discrimination at the individual level, but it's about men in general are looking to the private sector, and especially within the industry and the construction industry. Women in general tend to gravitate to the public sector and health professions. Only one-fifth working in the public sector.
It seems to have been the author past that the labour market is an integral part of a fairly well-functioning market economy where independent parties negotiating the formation of wages on the labour market.
as Kallifatides believe that it is with ten-year planned economic solutions which redistributes from the male-dominated professions to kvinnodominerande professions is both naive and unrealistic. Does not the labour market. It seems to have been the author past that the labour market is an integral part of a fairly well-functioning market economy where independent parties negotiating the formation of wages on the labour market. It will not work with a central committee which shall determine all salary increases.
So instead of unrealistic planned economic models we should instead focus on creating a society where education and career are not dependent on gender. From the business hold it is run several projects to get more women to seek traditionally male occupations. For business, it is basically a kompetensförsörjningsfråga where it is all about the supply of expertise will be worse if only half of the population can be imagined to apply to certain industries.
But in order to get more women to choose male-dominated professions and more men are choosing female-dominated occupations, it is sufficient probably not with the campaigns from the business community. We also need to see if we can do something within the framework of the education system that promotes less sex education and career choices.
The trade union confederation Saco in a report (Women and men in an individualized wage formation) has shown that it is primarily women who serve on the individual salary. One way to reduce the differences in pay between men and women would be to increase the element of individual wage setting even for the female-LO-professions. We can gladly discuss in next year's round of wage negotiations.
