Wage Gap Bake Sale

The CWC will have a table in the Pit and will be selling baked goods on a sliding scale based upon the current wage gap statistics. So if you’re a white woman, on average you make 77 cents on the dollar compared to white men. You’d get a 23-cent/per dollar discount on baked goods. Black women make about 64 cents in comparison to white men, so they would receive a 36-cent/per dollar discount on the baked goods. The purpose of this activity is to provide a fun reversal as well as create awareness of the wage-gap and the fact that gender is one of many characteristics that influence wages.
