This bar in Brooklyn - The Way Station - channeled Lena Dunham and made women pay only 77% of their bar tabs while men paid the full 100% of the bill. Your first thought was probably to ask Siri where this bar is so that you can get the Black Friday Sale of happy hour specials. But it turns out the bar did this to highlight wage inequalities in America, since women made $0.77 to every $1.00 a man makes. That's like way harsh Tai.
It's a pretty great idea for a bar, mostly because The Way Station got tons more customers and women voluntarily went to a bar instead of a restaurant patio or their own kitchen. But the betchy solution to pay inequality is just to make men buy things for you, and they can start by paying for my gin and tonic..
