I think chalking the perspective up to ignorance and a lack of "real world" experience is condescending.

and i don't mean ignorance in like a b*tchy way but literally just not knowing. and honestly until i read the Lily Ledbetter case and worked on some similar sh*t, I didn't know either.  Bc your employer will tell you they're paying you the same as everyone else but not.  They'll lie. 

eta: or they'll make up reasons why--like that article that said reviewers find more errors and are harsher on your work bc you're black. it's all very subtle sh*t especially since most people never discuss their wages at work. so how do you even find out? it's all very hidden under "performance" reviews and ish. I mean this woman is paid 100k LESS. some people don't ever make that in a year.  Can you imagine?

Not knocking awareness at all. But we all choose where to spend our emotional energy. Some people don't want to spend it on futile endeavors and would rather focus on something else.



True, some people are leaders most are followers. I'm not offended more saddened. But I'm not disappointed because some views will only be changed when life slaps them up a little.

And why do you that it is futile?The women's suffrage movement wouldn't have happened if everyone just said, " Let's give up this is futile".


I guess it just depends on how you look at the world. Every issue is not going to be resolved. So I spend my time on that which is more important to me. I think fighting against wage discrimination is pretty futile, so it's not something I'll spend time on in my own life aside from voting. It affects me but I'm meh about it so I'll let others fight the good fight.

I think parenting in poverty is a scourge on this earth, while other think it's futile to even think about addressing it. But I spend my energy on it because it's important to me.

These two issues seem related to me no?

I can see how wage discrimination contributes to parenting in poverty ...

no it doesn't but okay

if you feel you are qualified or more qualified than someone that is making substantially more than then you should speak up

but an employer would probably love you....while you put in the work and get paid less and are okay with it


Yup Ouch

Yes, related in that I can't think of many issues that occur in a vacuum.

Poverty is caused by lots of things, wage discrimination being a small part of it. But choosing to parent in poverty is only tangentially related to wage discrimination.

Either way, parenting in poverty is far more important to me than wage discrimination.
