Letter To The Editor: Pay Equity Makes ‘Cents’

Public Policy Chair
AAUW-Los Alamos 

Equity pay makes “cents” … that’s an understatement. In fact, for women in the workplace, pay equity would increase lifetime earnings by as much as $2 million for those with graduate degrees and by more than $1 million for those with undergraduate degrees.

That would mean more money to pay off student loans, put food on the table, and save for retirement. And pay equity isn’t just a women’s issue—it’s a family issue.

World Futures: PEOPLE ... Sustainable Long Term Encapsulation – Including Mental

• World Futures:  What Do We Need?

In the domain of science fiction (e.g., Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, Star Trek…) we see space vehicles zooming around the universe with human beings on board seemingly doing well pursuing a mission, discovering new worlds, finding new life forms, and engaging in combat.

Many aspects of the voyage, however, are taken for granted since it is a fictional universe. Perhaps most important in the “for-granted” category are energy, mass, time, and the sanity of the humans.

So, once they are old enough to receive an allowance or to earn money in some fashion, encourage them to set a goal for something they want, such as a toy or video game, and to put money aside every week for that goal.
