This is excellent, Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame appears in a new skit by Funny or Die to highlight women’s inequality in the workplace.
The statistics cited in the video are eye opening for anyone who is unaware of just how much workplace inequality still exists in the US:
Hendricks: In the U.S., women make 23% less than their male counterparts. Did you know in the make-up 70% of the minimum wage workforce is female? But only 15% of Fortune 500 CEO’s are?
Co-worker: Well, that’s depressing.
Hendricks: So, I figure if we are going to run our businesses like it’s the 1960s, I’m going to act like it.
