来源: 英语作文网 时间: 2016-03-22 阅读:
Most men and women feel that a dinner bill should be split down the middle, but with women only making 79 cents for every dollar a man earns, how fair is this it really?

对于晚餐之后的买单问题,绝大多数人都认为应该平摊。但如果考虑到收入问题,比如女性收入仅为男性的79%,你觉得这真的公平吗?
 
A new app aims to answer this question, and for others who fall victim to income inequality, by dividing the check up according to each person's race and gender1.
 
Equipay uses Bureau of Labor2 Statistics and math to calculate how much is owed from each person and there is an option to 'protest', but it will only give you statistics about the wage gap.
 
'Equipay helps you avoid the entrenched3 discrimination that exists in our society. It doesn't split the bill equally -- it splits it equitably,' the firm's site says.
 
'You pay what you should to balance out the wage gap.'
 
To find out what everyone owes after the meal, just open up Equipay and select your friends from your friends list that are dining with you that evening.
 
The app has a built in 'diversity tracker' that lets you know how diverse your friends really are, the list also displays the level of diversity for each person.
 
Type in the amount of the entire bill at the top, tip included, and the software will begin calculating the split based on who your company is.
 
Finally it will show you the list again, but now with how much each person owes.
