Kleiner Fairnesstest für Museumsleiter und prekär Beschäftigte


Diese sechs schönen Fragen hat Facebook angespült. Fragen zu einem Tabu. Über Geld redet man nicht, auch im Museum, vor allem dann, wenn man Sparzwänge und Vollrechtsfähigkeit zur Re-Finanzierung nach unten weiterreicht...
Ich füge noch eine siebente Frage hinzu: Welches Vielfache des Durchschnittseinkommens aller MitarbeiterInnen macht der Gehalt der Museumsleitung aus? Das Doppelte, mehr als das Dreifache, mehr als das Zehnfache...?

• Are your internships paid or unpaid?  (Every museum internship should be paid. Period. You can rationalize it any way you want, but if you are offering unpaid internships for the "experience" you are ripping people off, AND contributing to the lack of diversity in the museum field.)

• Do all your job listings list salary ranges? (If not, what are you ashamed of?)

• Is there pay parity between departments? (Do you really want to make the argument that development staff should be paid much more than exhibits or education staff?)

• Can your full-time staff actually support themselves on the salary you pay them? (Or do they need second jobs?)

• Do you delay (or "slow pay") contractors or freelancers? (Your institution expects work to be done in a timely way, so why shouldn't contractors have the same expectation about their pay?)

• Are you choosing employees because of their spouse's benefits, or deliberately holding down scheduled hours to avoid paying benefits?  (Not only are you skirting unfair labor practices if you are doing this, but you are a weasel if you are doing this!)
