Another Celebrity Wrong On The Wage Gap

September 16, 2016

Many celebrities have issues that get discussed in very public ways, even on reality TV shows such as Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew. The issue a new comedy HuffPost series, “Celebs Have Issues,” tackles in its first episodeisn’t about a failed relationship or addiction, but instead a public policy issue—equal pay for women in the workplace.

Dressed in pink, actress Kristen Bell makes a pitch that the way for companies to save money is not through outsourcing production “to far away countries like India, China and Narnia,” but through “Pinksourcing,” hiring a female labor force, because women are paid less than men. As she strolls through cubicles, she says, “With Pinksourcing, women are a bargain at the workplace, since you only have to pay them 77 cents on the dollar.”
