Congress: Cap CEO pay at 50 times salary of the average worker.

Via CREDO:

A petition, which is to Congress, asks the following:

The ratio of CEO pay in the United States has ballooned to 380 times that of the average worker. Pass legislation to limit the salary of CEOs to 50 times as much as the average employee at their companies.

A recent viral video highlighted how massive wealth inequality in the U.S. has become in recent years, with the richest 1% of the country possessing more money than the poorest 80% combined. A major driver of this inequality is pay disparity, with CEOs in Fortune 500 companies now making 380 times as much money as the average worker. This is a massive increase from 1980, when CEOs were making 42 times as much as the average worker.

To help rectify this problem, Congress needs to pass legislation that caps the ratio of CEO pay to average worker pay at 50 times. CEOs can still be very well compensated, but this will help to drive down the massive disparity we’re facing right now. Sign this petition to demand Congress help fix our income inequality problem by capping CEO pay.

  • how to bring up the subject of sex…

"Employers have relied not just on being able to pay women less, but on specific gendered skills and qualities that they expected from female workers. Moreton, in her book To Serve God and Wal-Mart, detailed the way that the retail behemoth exploited the specific skills of Southern white Christian women going to work outside the home for the first time as much as their willingness to work for little pay because they’d never been paid before. The tradition of service that those women grew up with kept them working in low-wage jobs and made it hard for them to see the gender discrimination happening before their eyes—until, that is, a few of them sued. The conditions of women at the bottom of the economic ladder have had an impact on everyone, as the middle rungs have weakened or disappeared. Using the excuse of “care” to pay women less drove wages down, and now those jobs make up more and more of the economy, defining the lives of more and more workers. When the fastest growth fields are low-wage service jobs, that’s not a victory for women, although, Poo notes, it is an opportunity to reshape the way we value service work, to make it less precarious and to create real protections for the workers who do it. In other words, not just to pay lip service to “the end of men,” but to place real value on women’s work."

"I’m so fucking sick of people being all offended at fatness. I am sick of people expecting fat people to hide themselves away out of public sight, never being seen at the shops, at the gym, in the workplace, on the street. I’ve had enough of people complaining that they saw someone’s fat arse, arms, belly, thighs, whatever. I’m tired of being told that fat people should cover our bodies, wear dark, minimising, flattering clothing. That we shouldn’t be seen in leggings, tights, sleeveless tops, short shirts, tight jeans, swimsuits and short skirts. I’m sick of fat people being told they should starve themselves, never eat. I’m royally fucking fed up with being expected to hide myself away like I’m something to be ashamed of. I’m over being hated simply because I exist in a fat body."

BAD GIRLS DO IT WELL
The Gulabi gang is a group of women vigilantes active across North India. It is named after the pink saris worn by its members. The group was founded as a response to widespread domestic abuse and other violence against women. Gulabis visit abusive husbands and beat them with bamboo sticks. In 2008, they stormed an electricity office and forced officials to restore the power they had cut to extract bribes. The Gulabis have also stopped child marriages and protested dowry and female illiteracy.


Will never not reblog Gulabi gang.

It shouldn’t but it still does

it will probably still be relevant in the next decade as well. It’s how the media works, unfortunately

On Black Friday, I went out shopping for holiday gifts for my family. I had to work that day so I had to go out pretty early and no one wanted to go with me.

As always, I had a hard time not shopping for just me and only me. I like to treat myself to gifts and sure enough…

Dear Friends who have larger busts/difficulty finding cute bras in your size/enjoy finding cute lingerie!

There is a very lovely brand - Freya - that makes super adorable bras, ranging in sizes from 28B to 38K, and anything in between! My favourite/most used bra ever comes…

Freya is an excellent brand! I love, love, love the fact they have sports bras and swimsuits, which fit my bust versus either shoving them into something too small or falling out of the top of my bathing suit.

fuck yeah sex education: Sex and Virginity; what do they mean?

fuckyeahsexeducation:

Abstinence only education teaches us that it’s best to remain virgins until marriage, to abstain from sex until you have found someone you’d like to spend the rest of your life with. The problem is, virginity is a social construct and everyone has a different opinion on what sex actually…

"

Make gender — specifically the idea that men are gendered beings — a central part of the national conversation about rampage killings. Typical news accounts and commentaries about school shootings and rampage killings rarely mention gender. If a woman were the shooter, you can bet there would be all sorts of commentary about shifting cultural notions of femininity and how they might have contributed to her act, such as discussions in recent years about girl gang violence. That same conversation about gender should take place when a man is the perpetrator. Men are every bit as gendered as women.

The key difference is that because men represent the dominant gender, their gender is rendered invisible in the discourse about violence. So much of the commentary about school shootings, including the one at Sandy Hook Elementary, focuses on “people” who have problems, “individuals” who suffer from depression, and “shooters” whose motives remain obtuse. When opinion leaders start talking about the men who commit these rampages, and ask questions like: “why is it almost always men who do these horrible things?” and then follow that up, we will have a much better chance of finding workable solutions to the outrageous level of violence in our society.
