Time’s Up for the Pay Gap

It’s a bit of an irritating situation when you’re a hard-working soul earning 79% of what men make, day in and day out, for the same work, according to 2014 data as reported the by the U.S. Census Bureau. Unfortunately, that’s the situation for women still struggling with the gender pay gap. And the financial repercussions? Women lose an average of over $10,000 in annual income compared to men. Just think of that luxurious end-of-year vacation in Bali!

It’s absurd that this fiscal tragedy is still happening with so little progress. There is only one answer we can responsibly advocate to remedy the situation: for women across the globe to refuse to marry and procreate until the salary numbers are put right. If sexist taskmasters don’t start paying equally, it’ll be the end of the human race as we know it. Problem solved!

Make. Work. Better.
