Discrimination in the workplace: women are really different
Some employers only consider their own economic benefits and believe that women inherently affect the work of the unit or have doubts about women’s ability to work.
Employment discrimination has become an important reason for women’s employment difficulties.
In addition, women are also subject to numerous discriminations in the workplace.
First, the income discrimination of women is lower than that of men. The reorganization is affected by the prevailing social concepts and the discrimination against women by employers, but is caused by women themselves.
Women are particularly vulnerable to underestimating themselves, which is why their income is “low” to their potential.
A series of surveys conducted at numerous universities has shown that women can accept lower continuous pay than their male colleagues for the same lab job.
This is not changed by the level of income of women in their previous job.
The root cause, according to some psychologists, is a “depressive effect.”
According to the definition in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Psychological Association, the depressive effect refers to the fact that people who only account for a minority in society tend to underestimate themselves in the face of the social elite.
Vulnerable groups will take this vulnerable category for granted.
When they see the advantages of the dominant group (ie men), women think they should be, no matter how unfair this advantage is.
The most effective way for a woman to maintain extreme poverty is to trouble herself.
“Low” income women always unconsciously throw a variety of banana peels on their way.
For example, applying for a job that is not enough for you, conflicting with colleagues, procrastinating, halfway through, and constantly changing jobs, always good when you reach your destination.
Their common characteristic is that they are attacking everywhere, the energy is scattered, and they are not focused.
They always make these mistakes endlessly and endlessly, until one day they suddenly look back, and then they regret the stupid things they did.
Second, appearance discrimination. Some people have done a questionnaire survey on women’s employment. They asked, “What is the most important thing for women in the job search process?
“, The top four answers are: appearance temperament, education and public relations ability, respectively, 70.
2% and 60.
7% of respondents chose these options.
In addition, many units have also made demands on women’s marital status.
Women’s appearance is important in both job search and employment.
A reporter reportedly learned a similar situation during an interview in the talent market.
A girl who graduated from a foreign language department introduced her. After graduating in 2004, she started her bitter job search process.
She has a first-class spoken language and has applied for translation positions in many companies, only because of her height.
5 meters, repeatedly brushed off during interviews.
So that for 4 years she could only make ends meet by working as a tutor.
It is understood that although this year’s marketing, business management and other occupations are in great demand, some female candidates with different skills can choose alternately.
On the one hand, there is an urgent need for talent recruitment, but on the other hand, there is no ability to find a job.
In the nurse industry, the phenomenon of recruiting people based on their appearance is more obvious.
“When recruiting nurses in a hospital, they first look at the appearance and physique of the candidate, and then refer to their performance and actual ability.
“A loser was angry.
In the workplace, beautiful women generally pay more than ordinary employees.
A killer tip for researchers at Gildhall University in London: An average secretary earns 15% less than a beautiful secretary.
The study also found that men considered to be unattractive earn 15% less than their handsome colleagues, and women who are less attractive also earn 11% less than their beautiful colleagues.
Obesity has no effect on men’s pay, but women suffer because of obesity and receive 5% less compensation than colleagues who lose weight.
The study interviewed 11 thousand people and was about 33 years old. Recently, when I read “Girlfriend” magazine, I saw another advertisement that discriminated against women.
COOKAKA, an accessory brand, posted an advertisement in “Girlfriend Campus” magazine.
Instead, the ad stipulates the requirements of the person viewing the ad, which is designated as “non-financial and complete vision.”
This claim is considered by many to be a violation of consumer rights and a form of discrimination against women. They believe that COOKAKA slogan means that COOKAKA’s franchisees and consumers are wealthy and attractive.people.
This also shows that jewelry companies discriminate against women in the workplace.
Third, psychological discrimination. Of course, female discrimination cannot rule out the subjective consciousness of female professionals.
Many women position themselves as “gender disadvantaged groups” in the subconscious. Because of such subjective consciousness, they may become more sensitive in the workplace, and it is easy to strengthen those phenomena that were not originally unfair.
For example, when a female employee sees a male colleague smoking and chatting with the boss, and approaches, they feel that the boss must be partial to the male employee.
Some women subconsciously believe that since we are vulnerable, we should of course receive more attention and care.
But in today’s highly competitive workplace, who will take special care of others for no reason?
Sometimes, in fact, women just do not receive special care, but it does not mean that they have been discriminated against.
This difference is indeed interesting, and there are many reasons for this difference.
If we study the psychology of men and women in the workplace, it is not difficult to find that women say that their posture in the workplace is usually compared with the current part of men; but men are always similar to their past parts.
Most women believe that, compared with men, they are still in a disadvantaged position in the workplace, and in some respects they are just fair. But men find that in the past, women began to appear in many areas of male domination.Because of the increase in resistance, the decline of men instead.
In addition, men have higher “social expectations”. In fact, society is putting pressure on men, which has led men to internalize this standard, requiring them to be outstanding, and to have a house and a car for their wives and children to live.Have a certain quality, must be strong in the work, otherwise it will be considered not outstanding; by reference, society does not have such expectations for women.
In this case, men’s self-requirements are naturally higher, and more time and energy are allocated to work. Objectively, this has caused women’s development in many fields.
In this way, men take it for granted, while women feel that they do not get a fair return.
Fourth, ability discrimination In the workplace, women’s ability is often questioned, and many people think that women’s ability to work is not as good as men’s.
There are men and women in the world, but according to their respective levels of life, different educational backgrounds are divided into different social groups.
My point is that the development of different people in the workplace cannot be based on gender alone.
If we pay attention to it, we will find that women develop better than men in many occupations, such as basic education, early childhood education, sales in some industries, and nursing.
