equal pay form women?

I joined the NSW Public Service in 1977. I was then a Clerical Assistant and gained a promotion to a position of Clerk. I am still employed in the NSW Public Sector. At no time in this period have I been aware of male or female pay rates within the Awards I have been paid under.
With the many discussions on the Pay Equity cases, I am not aware of which Industrial Awards in both NSW and Australia have male and female rates of pay.
Can you please advise where I can find a website which shows the male and female rates if they exist in various Awards.
Many thanks,

Dear Bibbie,

The following website may help:

You may also try Googling -
"NSW Award Rates."

There is NO difference. It is illegal.

However where apples are compared with oranges it is always possible to 'prove' anything. For instance, male workers typically work more overtime and their take home pay may be higher. Although overtime is being cut out of many workplace agreements, which is a very sad day for workers and buries Australia's world renowned 8/8/8 day.

Also, feminists like Julia Whatshername, the one who carried a long knife and used it, decreed that some occupations that had more women workers should have their pay increased. She did not see equity being delivered by the free market. For some occupations she might have been right, but she was blind to the occupations where the majority of working poor were men.

However, now that there are very well paid and comfortable sinecures for those educated middle class feminists, such as in the Office of Women with Status, there will be constant beavering away to show inequality. They have the wordsmiths and nags to do that full time.

All jolly good reasons for workers to put the rubbish out in Canberra tomorrow.

Dear Bibbie,

I trust that the website that I gave you earlier will
be of some help in your reasearching this issue.
I've since come across two more links that may provide
you with further insights into this topic:

Good Luck.
