-- Download Is Your Boss Sexist? as PDF --
My very first job was at a pizza restaurant. I think it was common in those days to insist, on pain of firing, that workers don’t talk to each other about their wages.
I didn’t see that as sexist, necessarily, but just as a way for the employer to not be caught paying some people more than others.
Over time, it became clear that work was gendered. Boys made pizza, girls made pasta. Were pay rates also gendered? Possibly.
If you think the women in your life are not treated equally in workplaces, you are not paranoid. Enjoy the infographic detailing the nature of how employers oppress women, with US-focused data.
