Patricia Arquette used her Oscar acceptance speech to address the issue of unequal pay for women. The macro stats do reveal that women earn slightly less than men on average. They also show women take more sick days and more vacation days compared to male workers. They also show women have shorter tenures per job. They also show women work less overtime. They also show women retire sooner. They do not factor in that any chick with a decent pair of tits can get a job earning $200 bucks a night in non-reported cash pouring rum and cokes while you’re hunkered under a Buick making twelve bucks an hour and shelling back half of it to the government. Maybe that would close the gap.
The only thing I can glean from Arquette’s generic applause line is that women should be paid to stay home and have babies and America should fully commit to socialism:
“To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer of this nation. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all in the United States of America.”
Arquette was real life pregnant in two of the scenes in Boyhood, the movie which allowed her to win this award. She still showed up on set. We have equality. If you want subsidization that’s another story. In this world we all start at eight bucks an hour. We work our way up to Beyonce at $500,000 an hour. We see the mom glasses and the undone hair. Now get into that Glory march because black people still have real problems.
