(en) Spain, CNT anarcosindicalismo Feminism: March 8: Never Invisibles!!! (ca) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 5 Mar 2016 15:45:43 +0200

Today is a day of vindication and struggle. A day that visibilizamos and recognize those who, against all odds, still face power as workers and as women. A day in which we say that the reality of working women draw us a map in which the invisibility, poverty, discrimination and violence are defining aspects. One day when we remember that the struggle of working women is not and can be a secondary struggle. ---- Working - class women face daily to a double discrimination: as workers and as women. The salaria gap l reaches shameful levels and is based on things like the lower remuneration of women for equivalent work (as, for example, the difference between cleaner / ay pawn); undervaluation of traditionally female categories (maids, ironers, caregivers...) or wage differences between masculinized and feminized sectors.

This discrimination also materializes in areas related to access to employment, promotion or training: establishment of objective selection criteria falsely (eg automotive demand a title to work on an assembly line ); , based on the time availability or, what it is worse and more common, no selection criteria, allowing the company to hire so without further explanation sexist criteria elimination of certain benefits for categories with over-representation female (as pluses, fill vacancies or conversion of temporary contracts into permanent ones ); establishment of training courses outside working hours... etc.

To this must be added that temporary contracts into permanent activiades, false partial contracts with exhausting days or part- time jobs , Unlisted or without a contract, mainly affect women.All this must be understood on the basis that the vast majority of informal and formal care are carried out by women and those tasks, essential for the maintenance of society, they are deeply undervalued. A esterespecto, the latest labor reform marked a new twist to perform a regression in relation to the restriction of the possibility of reduced working hours, the des-ownership of companies in the implementation of measures for equality and de facto elimination of any semblance of co - responsibility between men and women.

The conciciliación is understood as a right, not an obligation. That is, you can not legally force a man to compatir the domésiticas tasks and, therefore, that affects their employment status, in the same way that you can not force a woman. The difference is that women are required as a result of the division of tasks in a patriarchal system, which is much more ruthless than the law.

To top it off, the stoppage of the ?? Law promoting personal autonomy and care for people in situations of dependency ??, with its consequent elimination of the contribution to the Social Security family care involves not only the confirmation that dependents are not considered subjects of rights but also the loss of rights must be extended to carers , that will be even more isolated, impoverished and dependent on income from third parties.

When chores are done for pay, the situation (improved with the entry into force of Royal Decree 1620/2011 ?? ??) remains daunting. Housemaids are a sector that, quite simply, has not recognized the Fundamental rights which marks the Spanish Constitution and that is outside the statute of workers: they may have a duty to spend the night in their jobs, in addition to the 40 hours per week, may be required to be available 20 hours per week ( in addition overtime); They not entitled to unemployment benefits; his dismissal is cheaper and fits the mere withdrawal; not entitled to early or partial retirement; the possibility of inspection is limited; the nullity of the dismissal never carries readmission rate and jurisprudence compensation in case of unfair dismissal equivalent to unfair dismissal in the Workers ' Statute.

Working women face daily not only these situations but also to the fact that these injustices are normalized in a macho society. This normalization of inequality is the cause of the feminization of poverty, limits that women may face gender violence and difficult, directly, the participation of women in trade union struggles. The struggle of working women is often ignored, disparaged and even ridiculed.

For the CNT, is the self-organized Working Class which is able to analyze, understand and reverse these situations in a fight that is working for and libertarian, it is necessarily anti - patriarchal. Therefore, in this March 8, workers of the CNT back to say loud and clear no, no struggles Second, there are oppressed second and, therefore, continue Confronting the invisible, the poverty, discrimination and violence.

Long live the 8 March

Long live the struggle of working women
