Demand equal pay! March into work and take your seat in the chief executive officers comfy, ergonomic leather chair.
Nationally, Oklahoma ranks No. 34 when it comes to income equality for women, according to a recent study from financial website WalletHub.com. Tell your boss (because youre the boss now, remember?) that National Womens Law Center data shows six out of 10 of our states minimum wage workers are female.
Hmm. Perhaps a better way to celebrate would be to register to vote, mark your calendars and, most importantly, vote.
National Conference of State Legislatures data shows that in 2015, 24 percent of the nations state legislators are women. In Oklahoma, that number is 12.8 percent. Thats 19 women out of 149 seats. That also means only one state ranks lower than ours: Louisiana (11.8 percent).
For comparison, 42 percent of Colorados House/Assembly and Senate membership is female, Vermonts is 41.1 percent and Arizonas is 35.6 percent.
Vote. Then, once youre the real boss, take a seat in that leather chair and send out 400 emails demanding new TPS report covers before heading out for three grueling rounds of golf!
