April 9 was equal pay day in the U.S., where the wage gap remains a stubbornly high 23%. In Switzerland, where the gap is closer to an even 20%, a bank cooperated with a local women's organization to make this video dramatizing that country's wage gap. When men tried to withdraw CHF100 from an ATM, they received CHF80 instead. Their variously angry, bewildered, and violent reactions — until the ATM receipts explain the prank — are priceless.
Suddenly, scores of MRAs emerged from their hidey holes, ready to cry about how in a world where men are truly the oppressed class, this is an insult to their struggle. The struggle of the poor, underserved white male, who had to suffer the indignity of a prank.
And if I may add, this prank actually makes a helluva lot more sense than the "Affirmative Action Bake Sales" that apparently the GOP group at my proud alma mater pioneered.
