Economic Security

Gender should no longer be a factor in unequal levels of economic security during working life or in retirement.

WHAT?

  • The full time equivalent total remuneration of all genders is equal.
  • The superannuation savings and retirement incomes of all genders is equal.

HOW?

  • Eliminate underpayment of female dominated industries through award changes.
  • Employers must disclose their gender pay gap.
  • Supplement superannuation contributions of carers.
  • Introduce a women’s budget impact statement.
  • Value unpaid work such as caring through direct financial or tax subsidy means.
  • All legislation introduced into both State and Federal Government must be reviewed for gendered consequences. A legal right to equal pay must be established.
