Oregon plan to drop their prices for female customers by 23 cents. The restaurants want to raise awareness about women earning 23 percent less than men in the workplace.
The American Association of American Women, which is sponsoring the event, says that when the new prices go into effect, 23 percent of the 2007 will have passed, thus, that's the number of extra days women will have to work in 2007 to catch up with men.
If an employer has to pay a man one dollar for the same work a woman would do for 59 cents, why would anyone hire a man?
muddgirl: Notice that this list is all low-paying jobs. I'm so glad men have difficulty getting hired at minimum wage!
hoverboards don't work on water: Are you in the US, Western Infidels? I thought that sort of blatant disparity was outlawed by the Equal Pay Act.
Jody Tresidder: CEO wages are not remotely comparable with, say, those of a dental hygienist. The latter's rates, on the other hand, are not exactly a world removed from the minimum wage!
