From wage inequality to the history of the Korean War or genetics, to “Recipes for a Better World”, here are four very good documentaries for an informative Sunday.
“Cash investigation”: released women, underpaid women
In France, despite the awareness linked to the #metoo movement, equal pay is far from being achieved. If the law requires since 1972 employers to ensure equal pay “For the same work or for work of equal value”, active French men still earn, in 2020, 22.8% more on average than their female colleagues, according to INSEE. This regrettable figure hides wide disparities between sectors. For this issue produced by Zoé de Bussière, the magazine “Cash Investigation”, presented by Elise Lucet, focuses on the banking sector, which is a national dunce with its 36% difference between the remuneration (fixed and variable) of its employees. Figures, edifying testimonies, humorous sketches, uninhibited tone, the “Cash” recipe hits the bull’s eye, the great interest of this issue being to show that tackling this type of inequality requires less a change in mentality than a change in method. The study of the Quebec example, which implemented a strict policy of “pay equity” in the 2000s, is particularly interesting in this respect. Audrey Fournier
“Recipes for a better world”: solutions to preserve our health and the planet
“Our children grow up in a world where everything is accessible at the lowest cost. Tomatoes in winter, strawberries in fall (…). Their plate is the result and the cause of a system gone mad. “ Who can still doubt it? But if “Our food is the main culprit”, insists the Swedish professor Johan Rockström, it is also the solution: “Our plate is the most powerful lever to make our planet alive. ” Former editor-in-chief of “Cash Investigation”, Benoît Bringer invites the viewer to those who have not waited for either the health crisis or state directives to act, impose organic food in their canteen, eradicate food waste, recycle … Sometimes since more than ten years. Their feedback is exciting. Without avoiding the difficulties, they demonstrate that their “Recipes for a better world” are good, profitable, even on a large scale. Catherine Pacary
