Ace Ankomah Advocates For Equal Salaries For Women Playing Same Roles As Men

10:47:00 AM

Women with same qualification who have been employed and playing the same role as their male counterparts in their various jobs should earn equal salaries as the men, Ace Anan Ankomah has suggested.

According to him, even though abuses cut across all gender, women have been cheated out of what is rightfully theirs and have severely suffered some forms of abuses more than men.

Contributing to a panel discussion on International Womens Day on the Good Evening Ghana show, he explained that these abuses women suffer span from issues of inequalities in marriage, education and in the corporate world as well.

Asked whether men should earn more than women on the same job, he stressed, Why should she earn less simply because shes a woman Im working with her, she has the same qualification as I do, were doing the same job, and the appraisals show that were doing the same job. In the corporate world were all here to work and take monies home for whichever purpose.

The private legal practitioner also strongly objected to assertions that men should earn more because they are the heads of their families and responsible for footing the bills in the home.

He said, In the corporate world that doesnt matter. Anybody who says that, Ill tell the person its nonsense. if she has my qualifications and shes probably even doing better than me why should she earn less I think both men and women should earn the same, he said.
