o you want to save your company money? Well, you could hire only women!
At least that's the idea behind a hilarious spoof commercial produced by The Huffington Post featuring actress Kristin Bell.
In the video, Bell advocates for "pinksourcing," or the act of hiring only women to save money.
“Why outsource all of your production to far away countries like India, China and Narnia when we have the cheapest and the best work force right here in the good ol’ U-S-of-A? Women!”
“You don’t have to pay women over time, they’ll never ask for a raise and they don’t complain about their working conditions,” Bell said as she passes by a beleaguered woman using a trash can for a desk.
And don’t forget about all that free food!
“Women are great at remembering birthdays. They’re the only ones who bring baked goods into the office!”
But don’t worry if women do actually complain about the inequality, as they can be quelled (bribed) by giving them free stuff.
“And ladies, who cares if you make $30,000 less than men at your job, when they have FREE TAMPONS IN THE BATHROOM?”
The comedic video only points to what we already know to be true: The gender wage gap is still alive and well.
But as Kristin points out, it's still a pretty good thing for those in charge!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go make a batch of birthday brownies sprinkled with my salty tears.
