Hilarious “Paycheck Fairness Act Revenge” Video Takes The Sting Out Of Pay Inequity. Kind Of.
11:00 am, June 13th | by Amy Tennery
After the Paycheck Fairness Act failed, you might have felt a little helpless. What’s a gal’s recourse?
After all, this was a bill that would have provided greater legal protections to women who pursued sex discrimination on the job. Not exactly radical stuff. And seeing it fail is like watching a puppy (your favorite puppy) fall down a flight of stairs.
But what to do? A post-mortem letter-writing campaign? Or, like, I dunno, egg someone’s house?
No. Don’t do that.
Instead, try what this Funny or Die video imagines: Write childishly hilarious posts all over the opposing senators’ Facebook walls. Yesss. This is our Braveheart.
And nothing takes the sting out of watching a bill that could have helped women overcome pay inequity quite like a hilarious video, no?
(On a side note: I’m not usually the person who’s all “OMG, this video is so me!” But… Oh my God, guys, this is so me.) Erin Gibson, you rock.
