Newswise: FSU Research: Male and female firefighters have different problems with protective suits

FSU Research: Male and female firefighters have different problems with protective suits

Florida State University

When female firefighters put on the protective suits they need for their work, they’re often using gear that has been designed for a male body.Because of that mismatch, the suits don’t fit as well as they should, and their mobility is impaired. Firefighters working in gear that restricts their movement must work harder to move around in a stressful and physically demanding environment, which puts them at greater risk of overexertion and heart attacks, the leading cause of on-duty deaths.

دراسة Mayo Clinic تكتشف أن الخطة المنظمة لتعويض الراتب للأطباء تعد نموذجًا للمساواة في الأجور

Mayo Clinic

لا تزال المساواة في الأجور بين الجنسين في مجال الطب بعيدة المنال. ولقد ثبت أن الفروق في الأجور القائمة على النوع مستمرة، حتى عند مراعاة الخبرة والإنتاجية الطبية والرتبة الأكاديمية وعوامل أخرى. تؤدي أوجه عدم المساواة هذه إلى انخفاض كبير في الأرباح مدى الحياة والإرهاق الوظيفي والمواقف السلبية تجاه العمل والآثار العكسية على المهنة والمجتمع.

Mayo Clinic研究发现,结构化的纯工资医生薪酬计划是一种有效的薪酬平等模式

Mayo Clinic

医疗领域内的性别薪酬平等依然困难重重。因性别而产生的薪酬差异仍然存在,即便是纳入了经验、临床工作效率、学术等级和其他因素进行调控,情况也是如此。这些不平等导致了相关人员的终身收入明显降低、工作倦怠和对工作产生负面态度,并对职业和社会产生不利影响。
