Choosing your happiness over your parents' wishes
For some of us, it's really important that our parents approve of our partner. If you're close to your family or just have a lot of respect for them, it can feel like a must that they like your partner. But whether it's your partner's fault or not, it's really difficult if your parents don't approve. It can feel like you need to choose between your family and your partner, which just isn't a fair position for you to be in. So you need to honestly assess the situation and set some clear limits on how this is going to affect you. Because ultimately, it's your decision. https://www.bustle.com/p/what-to-do-if-your-parents-dont-like-your-partner-according-to-experts-6768832
How would you close the gender pay gap?
OPINION -In 1961, American historian Daniel J Boorstin coined the phrase “pseudo-events” to describe a growing trend in journalism and politics. An actual event, the sort of thing that used to fill newspaper columns, may be a plane crash, a shooting or a fire. A pseudo-event, by contrast, is a staged event produced solely for the purpose of generating media coverage — think press conferences, pre-planned protests or the release of a research report. Yesterday, the Workplace Gender Equality Agency released its annual gender equality scorecard, announcing the “gender pay gap” had fallen by 1.1 per cent but that men still earnt 21.3 per cent more than women on average.https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/at-work/how-would-you-close-the-gender-pay-gap/news-story/ae16514e8ba1c611e11b82885c3b9518?utm_medium=Facebook&utm_content=SocialFlow&utm_campaign=EditorialSF&utm_source=News.com.au
Backpackers,Int'l Students Fleeced Off their wages
Temporary workers in Australia are being exploited by a “broken system” and have little prospect of seeing money owed to them, a damning report has found. When working holiday maker Rodolphe Lafont realised he was being paid as little as $5 an hour picking fruit on a Victorian farm, he did what many in his position do: not much. “I am a backpacker and I don’t want to take a lawyer or something like that,” the Frenchman told SBS News. “It is difficult and takes a long time.” By contrast, enduring weeks of poor living conditions on one NSW farm was enough to drive German backpacker Jannik Lasschlott to seek out the help of the Fair Work Ombudsman. But it cost him his job.https://www.sbs.com.au/news/backpackers-international-students-losing-out-on-1-billion-in-unpaid-wages
