Closing the Wage Gap

We need to close the Wage Gap!

Dear Future President,

There is an important issue that I would like you to look at which is the wage gap. Women all over America get paid less than men for the same job. Women get paid 79 cents for every dollar a man gets paid. That is only 21 cents but still it shouldn't matter what gender you are. The average male nurse makes 61,000 dollars a year, but a female nurse makes 51,000 a year. That's not cool for the EXACT SAME JOB. Since you are the president YOU got the power to make change. This is supposed to be America! “The Land of the Free.” We could be the best country in the world if we just fix all of our problems. Thank you for your time and patience. Congratulations on your win!
