Do You Think They Won’t Do It?

Look at this blurb from a recent posting by The Onion:

Progressive Company Pays Both Men And Women 78% Of What They Should Be Earning

one percentGood joke, huh? The Onion is often spot on with their satire of our society but in this case I find it hard to believe that the job-creators have not hit upon this simple solution to the gender-pay gap. Of course it does seem to conflict with the historic position of corporations: whining that they are forced to give their top executives a few million dollars more each year in order to attract and keep top talent. I’m  surprised they have any spare change laying around to pay the employees who do all the work. One would think that between advertising, lobbying, and bribery, the major corporations would barely be able to meet the monetary demands of their own in-house one percent.

So has The Onion inadvertently released the Kraken?
