Hiring women is risky, so it goes.
Generally, they aren’t as reliable as men. They get pregnant and suck your benefits plan dry, then you need to train someone to fill in for them for 12 months, then displace that worker.
Then when their kids get sick they often take days off claiming to be sick themselves. The liars.
And anyway, women should stay home and raise children. They’re biologically oriented that way. And the prime minister even gives them $100 [taxable] each month per child to cover the loss of income of uppity women working.
And by the way, men should make more money than women because of the large head-of-household family responsibilities they shoulder.
So I was happy to hear that women do not actually leave their work so much more than men [like all those “irresponsible” women mentioned above]: Women no more likely to quit jobs than men since the early 1990s, study finds [see below].
Women no more likely to quit jobs than men since the early 1990s, study finds

OTTAWA (CP) – A new study says women have been no more likely to quit their jobs than men since the early 1990s, putting the lie to a common excuse for gender wage gaps.
Female workers have long been considered more likely than men to quit their jobs, to be absent or to take more days off for family reasons – a gender difference that some have used to explain the fact men are paid more on average than women.
But a new study by Statistics Canada documenting gender differences in quitting and absenteeism shows that differences between the sexes have been shrinking since 1994 to the point where they now are virtually non-existent.
The study found, for example, that 5.5 per cent of men quit their jobs in 1984, compared with seven per cent of women but, by 1994, the rate for women was 5.6 per cent, almost identical to the rate of 5.5 per cent for men; in 2002, the rates were 7.7 per cent and 7.6 per cent, respectively.
The study found that 4.2 per cent of Canadian women took temporary leaves due to pregnancy and maternity in 2002.
It found, on average, men took two days of paid sick absence, while women took about four days of paid sick absence per year, though there were no gender differences in most other paid and unpaid absences.
