"You Are Worthy Of A Fair Living Wage!"
As long as women don't stand up for themselves they will always get paid lower wages. I know, I know.

While they are out on the golf course and dining on the company credit card, we are eating sack lunches. While they are driving new cars every three years and have company gas cards, we are scrounging to pay for an oil change five thousand miles over the suggested oil change recommendation. Our work is important and rather than it be US vs THEM, if we respect each other and people are paid fairly, then we can feel as we are an integral part of a team.
