A 24-year-old choreographer has accused singer, Justin Bieber, of mistreating women. The dancer, who choreographed the singer’s 2016 tour, accused the singer of degrading women, stating that his treatment of them is an abomination. The choreographer wrote in a twitter post that she regrets working for the singer and that although she put in a lot of work for him, she was paid less than minimum wage. She also claims that Bieber made millions off her content. The twitter post also stated that the plaintiff could not afford to eat.
The plaintiff accused the 25-year-old singer of collaborating with overly problematic people. She stated that Bieber attended a church that does not support the LGBTQ community while at the same time hiring the plaintiff, an openly gay woman who is currently married to actress Ellen Page. The choreographer’s comments come after Bieber criticized singer, Taylor Swift, for accusing his longtime manager of manipulative bullying.
Women Report Gender Discrimination
According to a Pew Research Center survey, 42 percent of women in the United States have been discriminated against based on gender. Income is a severe issue among women. Twenty-five percent of women state that they earn less than their male counterparts, even though they have the same job title and qualifications. Other examples of gender discrimination in the workplace include:
- Sexual harassment: Any form of unwanted touching and inappropriate comments or culture that creates a hostile work environment.
- Not being promoted: Being passed up for a promotion to a male counterpart, regardless of experience or merit.
- Wrongful termination: Women are often faced with retaliation when they complain about sexual harassment or discrimination in the workplace.
- Unequal pay and benefits: The gender pay gap is a controversial topic in society today, as women still earn significantly less than their male counterparts in the same job position.
If you faced workplace discrimination based on your gender, you should keep a record of everything that has taken place. You should also report it to your employer. If nothing is done about your complaint, you can file a discrimination complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
