打破同工不同酬,由公開薪酬開始?

香港作為國際金融中心,是世上最富有的城市之一,但勞工剝削問題嚴重。例如在 2019 年「全球競爭力報告」中,香港因缺乏權益保障,在「勞工市場」一欄僅列全球 116 位,比新加坡低近 100 位。打工仔除了壓力大、工時超長、缺乏退休保障,還可能面對同工不同酬的問題。近年學界愈來愈多有關同工不同酬的研究,今年美國一份新報告就指,公開薪酬是解決問題的關鍵。

Percy Leung:敲擊樂手之苦

在我有份演奏的神劇,約瑟夫.海頓的「四季」中有 28 位小提琴手,即使其中一位出錯或是彈錯了一個音符,觀眾皆難以察覺。然而,作為敲擊樂手的我便沒有這般幸褔。在短短一節樂章中,我需要在 1 分鐘內兼顧敲擊低音鼓和鈸。當我猶如獨奏者般敲響這些樂器,正正由於它們迴蕩全場的響亮聲線,絲毫差錯都將顯露無遺。敲擊樂手若有半點差池,所有觀眾都一清二楚。
In my performance of Haydn’s The Seasons, there were 28 violinists. Hardly anyone in the audience, if any, would realise if a violinist had made a mistake or played a wrong note. However, this was not the case for me, who played the bass drum and cymbals together during the minute when I actually had to perform. As I was playing these instruments alone like a soloist, and because of the tremendous sounds that these instruments made, there was no hiding if I made a mistake. Everyone in the audience would know if I was late or early to an entry.

港女應立即放假到農曆初一

10 月 24 日,冰島女人提早於 14:38 放工;11 月 7 日,法國職場女性於 16:34 起怠工,更有揚言下年再見。之所以有特定時間和人物地點,皆因性別歧視之下,女性薪酬較低,按薪差比例換算成工作日數,就得出「同工同酬日」(Equal Pay Day),即從該日起到年末,女性「白幹」的工作天。根據香港人口普查數據,香港女性平均比男士少賺兩成,平均每年白做 73 日工。因此今日(11 月 16 日)已返工的港女應立即離開公司,直至 2017 年農曆初一(1 月 28 日)為止。
