Ryan Gosling Says You Should Get Equal Pay

Posted

Here’s an another inspiring post from our friends at The Daily Muse. Check it out: 

The wage gap women face today is no laughing matter. It’s been nearly 50 years since the passage of the Equal Pay Act, and women still earn significantly less than their male counterparts for doing the same work. That difference will add up to quite a bit over their careers—and it has to stop.

So, to help kick off Equal Pay Day, we’ve recruited the impossibly talented and persuasive Ryan Gosling to remind you why you deserve to be paid what you’re worth, and why you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for it.
