But How Feminist Is Your Dry Cleaning?
In virtually all aspects of life, women share the same rights as men. But for some reason, that principle hasn’t quite made its way into drycleaning … ZIPS Drycleaners says, that’s just not right. It’s bad enough that women make 77 cents on every dollar, they’re also expected to pay more to clean the clothes they wear to those jobs?
Over at The New Republic, Noreen Malone takes a look at a new marketing scheme (some might call it pandering) by ZIPS Drycleaners, which is offering flat-rate pricing for its customers, male or female. (This is, apparently, a legitimate issue that I did not know existed.) [TNR]
