Feminist Wage Gap Story Has Another Crack for the Light to Shine Through
In a nutshell, you should not plan on getting sick or hurt in Ireland due to the growing number of woman doctors who work shorter hours, on average, than their male peers, making medical professionals scarcer all around. You can't take for granted that you'll find a doctor when you need one. This story also provides an indisputable instance which shoots feminist wage-gap theory squarely in the ass!
"THE MEDICAL manpower crisis is even worse than previously estimated, with patients almost certain to experience difficulty accessing GP services, new research has shown.
"Researchers from the department of primary care and public health at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) have found that women GPs are only half as likely to work full-time at partnership level as male doctors. . . .
... a senior medical source described the study as "a severe wake-up call. Clearly we have got the balance wrong gender-wise. We must now rectify this because political correctness will not look after patients."I certainly cannot fault this "source" for his application of the term "political correctness". But isn't it politically incorrect to use that term at all, whatsoever? Last I checked, the PC folk were a tad tetchy upon that point! ;)
