Equal Pay Day, I’m sorry I missed you this year (NSFW)

As always, I’m late to the party (Canada’s Equal Pay Day was in March, this year). But, did you know that, on average, Canadian women’s wages did not match those of their male counterparts’ for 2010 until mid-March, 2011? That’s an extra two and a half months of work, ladies.

Maybe next year, I’ll arrive on time, and wear red to support the cause (read: people will note I am wearing red instead of black). Until then, enjoy this poorly translated Wikipedia entry on the topic as well as this succinct European TV spot (NSFW).
