Gender Pricing Debate

Dear Mr. President,

It was extremely gratifying to small businesses like the neighborhood dry cleaner, to hear your recent remarks at the swearing in of Maria Contreras- Sweet as head of the Small Business Administration, praising ‘small businesses as the lifeblood of our economy’. Imagine then my distress when a day later during your remarks about Pay Fairness, you segued into a smear on the quintessential small business, the dry cleaner, by suggesting you should be targeting them for gender biased pricing.

Mr. President, for dry cleaning services, gender pricing is a myth, and we can prove it with the math!
