Data shows most Americans making minimum wage are women. In reality, not only are more than half of all minimum wage workers women, they’re adult women with children who earn half of their family’s income. For this reason, not only is raising the minimum wage to $10.10 a labor rights issue, but a major women’s issue as well.
Women are more likely to hold low-wage jobs than men. In 2012, 64% of minimum wage workers were women compared to 36% of men. This means about 2.4 million women earn the minimum wage or less, while approximately 1.2 million men do. This imbalance is even more striking once you consider that women are just 46.8% of all employed workers in the United States.
Be with someone who you don’t have to hide from, in any way. Whether it’s your morning face before you’ve put any make up on, an embarrassing story about something that happened on your way home, or an ambition you’ve had since you were six years old… make sure you end up with someone who listens to and accepts all of it, and still loves you. A person you can tell your whole life to is a person worth spending a life with.(via yummyporn)
