Food and Shelter for Thought
y name is Ned. It’s an undisputable fact that food and shelter are the primary needs for survival. In the beginning, providing these needs was quite difficult. Men and women had to hunt and gather food and live in caves. Quite a hardship, but everyone did what was necessary and we survived.
But today things have changed considerably. All we need now is a job that pays enough to live on. Men and women get up and go to work, many at similar jobs. And this is where a discrepancy finds its way into our present mode of survival.
According to statistics women don’t get paid as much as men for the same work. So, it’s an undisputable fact that women are unable to buy as much food as men, nor have as good of a shelter. This can only lead to the conclusion that women—in the sense of being equal to men—were better off a million years ago than they are today.
The fact that the U. S. Government—all three branches—refuses to correct this discrepancy puts the government in violation of its own written constitution. How about that!
