Why Maclean’s is asking men to pay 26% more for its latest issue

Maclean’s magazine is highlighting the gender pay gap by asking men to fork over 26 per cent more for its latest issue. Two covers with two different prices—one at $8.81, the other at our regular price of $6.99—to reflect the 26 per cent gap between full-time wages paid to men and women in Canada. Maclean’s says the $1.82 differential is being donated to Indspire, an Indigenous-led charity that will direct the funds toward a scholarship for an Indigenous woman. #PayEquity https://t.co/cxPv7B8BOe pic.twitter.com/ZGjgsNPR3K—
