-- Tupperware has a container for every size food you can imagine but it's having a very big year the stock has more than doubled since January.
And markets outside America our booming.
Despite the good times though -- -- still some things that worries CEO Rick Goings including the pay gap between women and men in the workforce.
-- is our guest today on Fox Business -- pleasure Brian solvent good to see again.
Good to be here again -- all right before we get to your business a lot of talk about this -- the pay gap the -- still speak pretty loudly it's that women get I think only 77%.
The pay that men on average received although it has seem to have gotten better in the last decade or so you think there's still a lot of work to be done.
Lots of work is a matter of fact it's gotten better in Europe in the US has been progress.
But that's not a big part of the world when you consider more than six billion people -- China India Indonesia.
Are almost half the world's population and Brian I think.
When we -- -- -- -- for the World Economic Forum in in about a month I know there's about a hundred of us that we really put our heads together.
And focus on how to we'd change.
This -- how do you change we get because employers will argue solicit.
You -- -- you know a lot of they'll they'll take time off to have a baby maybe they'll leave the workforce -- more frequency that men.
There are people that will provide what they feel I'm not justifying our logical reasons why there isn't -- -- Well I think the one of the big issues has been we focus a lot and our corporation.
On this is we basically cast the role of women as winners but to act like.
Men and they're different and and we've started to leverage the power to enlighten educate empower women and what you really do as you set up an environment.
Four really that works to leverage the power of women the natural road DNA.
Very -- -- if you he do the analysis.
Women can multitask.
Most men can't in his because.
You go right to the woman's brain she has this thing called corpus Carlos and which -- connectors between right and left brain.
She can do more things and handle more things we find ways to leverage that she thinks we and more men think me.
And you find -- that women are natural nurtures and our experience across the world and about.
About a half a our leaders of our countries are women and you put her in charge of building great -- saying women are smarter than men.
Of this is very interesting.
Men have larger brains -- you know actually -- your head your doors I try saying things like that.
-- he had it he get you're right that's what I wonder what the extra brain for because she scores generally.
All over the world 4% higher IQ test you look why why -- only -- for years that I just didn't believer but I couldn't I couldn't understand anything.
That's probably why.
-- Rick let's get down here let's get down to your business all right let's talk about sales.
We talk about Tupperware parties and should I India I mean emerging markets -- bullet for you guys.
They really are but are established markets are doing well we're about half emerging markets and have established markets.
And I think what we've really found is you leverage not only the kind of product line that we have been these emerging market.
The at large percentage of income is spent on food clothing and shelter basically the old.
-- -- hierarchy of needs so.
We can -- woman not that she's not involved in food preparation and gathering.
-- or Tupperware product line met have really worked well secondly there are limited earning opportunities for women.
So it really is a double threat so.
We like what we're seeing all over the world.
Well you know we look at the trends of electricity growth in usage right I mean look it's hard for us to understand it.
But you know having traveled fairly -- this year just just having electricity.
Is a luxury for a lot of people these days.
As they grow as they get more income -- some of the first things they'll invest in our refrigerator or an icebox.
You know food preservation do you have got to go wherever you does that go directly.
You guys because you are relatively inexpensive way for people to maximize their spending and savings on food products.
That's true and that's that's what happens is the what we've had is this globalization.
Has led to -- time compression.
And they're seeing yet on the Internet you're seeing any broadcast.
How the rest of the world lives and they wanna catch up quick and they start close to home.
Brian it was very much like in the fifties here in the post war years.
