Should Flight Attendants Get Paid The Same As Pilots?
The CBC is reporting that the supreme court is investigating whether Air Canda flight attendants should get paid as much as pilots.
The paragraph that stood out for me was:
“The section [of the human rights act] says it is discriminatory for an employer to pay different wages to male and female employees in the same “establishment” who are performing work of equal value.”
That may be true. However, since when is a flight attendants duities and a pilots duities of equal value? Who has more responsibility?
Im curious to hear your comments. You can also take a look at what Aviatrix (a female pilot) had to say on the issue.
