This is a powerful ad, and I’m glad they’re trying to get creative. He’s smiling, but this problem is all too real.
Because I know a nonprofit where women case managers were supposed to have a 4% cost of living raise every year, and the CEO just took it for SIX YEARS, I know first hand the pain of women not having equal pay for equal work. Indeed, most nonprofits I know are staffed primarily by women, and the ED or CEO made 90,000 or 120,000 USD per year, while everyone else was lucky to make $12.00 per hour, or barely $36,000 per year.
Why do we continue to accept these tiny salaries as if they are inescapable facts of life?
And why are we encouraging a culture of destitution? I would love to get your thoughts on my posts, here.
