I disagree, but –
Here is a simple solution for stimulating the economy in this country: give women equal pay for equal work, said author and activist Gloria Steinem, during a recent speech at Western Carolina University.
“If women of all races were paid equally to white men for doing the exact same job, there would be $200 billion more in the economy,” Steinem said during her WCU address. “And those women are not going to put that money in a Swiss bank account. No, they’re going to spend it and stimulate the economy and create more jobs.”
