‘BY WOMEN, FOR WOMEN’ Vegan cafe charges male customers 18 percent ‘man tax’ and seats women first in bid to address gender pay gap

A CAFE is making waves after it began charging blokes more money in a bid to close the gender pay gap.

The feminist vegan owner of Handsome Her eatery in Melbourne, Australia, is making them pay an 18 per cent “man tax” as well as giving women priority over seating.

Owner Alex O’Brien told Broadsheet website: “I do want people to think about it, because we’ve had this (pay discrepancy) for decades and decades and we’re bringing it to the forefront of people’s minds.

“I like that it is making men stop and question their privilege a little bit.”

Ms O’Brien says the response from her customers has been positive, with one man even donating $50 (£30) to the cause.

    Unconstitutional and, federal usury laws violated, similar to when USDOT harasses trucks and the mafia charges Municipal Harassment Tax.
