National Equal Pay Day-Sarah Silverman

Apparently, there is a huge backlash against the concept of equal pay for equal work. Really? I have heard all kinds of excuses like women get paid less because they don’t ask for more pay or they don’t ask for promotions. I don’t buy that. Also, we are well aware that a women that asks can sometimes be called pushy, bossy, bitchy, etc. Truth is we shouldn’t have to ask because we should be getting paid the same without asking. But, hey maybe if we all start asking then it won’t be so strange or unfeminine to ask for a raise or a promotion. So, how about today on National Equal Pay Day everyone should take a moment and consider what you are not getting. Then think about asking for it. Need some inspiration? Just listen to Sarah Silverman. She doesn’t think UN-Equal Pay is so funny either.
