Pennsylvania Shop Gives Women a Discount to Highlight Pay Disparities
A pop-up shop owner in Pennsylvania hopes to start a conversation about the pay disparity between men and women by charging women 24 percent less, which is the average difference between male and female salaries in the state.
Women in Pennsylvania make 76 cents for every dollar a man makes, according to the National Women’s Law Center. The national average is not much better with women making on average only 78 percent of what their male counterparts make, according to the American Association of University Women.
