Pay what you’re paid. In Pittsburg, that’s 76% of a man’s salary.

“I’d been seeing the 78% statistic everywhere,” Schlenker told BuzzFeed News, referring to the amount of money the average woman makes compared to a man according to the US Census Bureau. “I know a lot of women don’t feel appreciated or as valued as they should in the workplace, and I thought there was something I could do to help a little.”
