Why Does America Think Mom Is Worth Less Than Dad?
As the product of a workingsingle mother household, I cannot tell you how much this angers me. Over the 17years I lived at home growing up, Mom missed out on an additional $183,328? Youmean, with an extra $10K a year, I could’ve grown up middle-class and gone to sixth-grade sleep-away camp?! Share these facts so that this economic prejudiceagainst half our population stops now.
In 2010, the median male worker earned $47,715 while the median female worker earned a mere $36,931, or only 77.4% of male take-home pay a year.
America no longer treats African-Americans as three-fifths of a human being; the least it could do is pay its working women like 100% of one.
