“There’s lots of untruths to these write-ups; they’re not as ruthless as that.
their nature is raw;
they hate all the law,
the stool pigeons, spotters and rats.
But the law fooled around;
kept taking him down,
and locking him up in a cell.
Till he said to me;
“I’ll never be free,
so I’ll meet a few of them in hell”
In 2016, women working full time were averaging only about 80% of what men were paid. In Texas specifically, women made 79% of the male average–something that calculates out to about a $10,000 difference in annual salary. It goes without saying that this numbers changes among racial groups. In 2016, Hispanic women were paid a mere 54% of what their male counterparts earned. For African-American women, that number rises only slightly, sitting at 63%. Asian women experience the closest difference, receiving 87% of the full amount for their fields. However, ‘close’ is not good enough for us or our sisters. At the rate we’re progressing, white women are slated to reach pay equality in 2119. Hispanic women will wait until 2233, and black women will wait until 2124.
We don’t know about you, but we haven’t got the time to wait for change.
We’re coming for our money.
Take a hint from two of America’s favorite outlaws, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow….
