Why women are paid less

Because they menstruate, according to Employers and Manufacturers Association chief executive Alasdair Thompson. Yes, really.

Which is a perfect example of the real problem: the dominance of our management class by old-fashioned misogynists like Thompson. Its also a perfect example of why the government needs to act: because with people like Thompson in charge, then business is not going to solve this problem by itself.
