Skandalöser Sexismus in England: Zwei Drittel halten Männer für die besseren Chefs

Men are the best bosses: Women at the top are just too moody (and it's women themselves who say so) titelt heute die britische Daily Mail. In dem dazugehörigen Artikel heißt es:

They are hormonal, incapable of leaving their personal lives at home and only too happy to talk about their staff behind their backs. Female bosses are a nightmare to work for, a survey of employees concludes.

And it is not just men who think so. Two-thirds of women said they preferred a male boss because their straight-talking, ‘get to the point’ attitude makes them easier to deal with. They are also much less likely to have a hidden agenda, suffer mood swings or get involved in office politics, workers said.

About 3,000 men and women were questioned for the research, with three-quarters of men agreeing that they would rather work for a man than a woman. A quarter of women accused female bosses of backstabbing and bringing their personal lives into the office. And a third of those polled said women with power are ‘loose cannons’ who often feel threatened by colleagues.

David Brown, of online recruitment firm, which commissioned the research, said: ‘Incredibly both men and women are in total agreement that men make better bosses – 63 per cent of women and 75 per cent of men.’ (...)

The study found that the average worker has had two female and three male bosses.

A third have left a job because they didn’t like their boss, and of these, the majority of women claimed they left because of a female manager.

Erschreckend. Kann man solche Umfragen nicht verbieten? So wird das doch nie was mit der Gleichstellung!
