VIDEO: Kids Discover The Gender Pay Gap - And Their Reaction Is Priceless


Published at 10:40am 8th April 2016.

A video which shows kids reacting to the gender pay gap asks "kids get it, why don’t we?”

A business solutions company released the campaign to emphasise the fact that women are paid less worldwide for doing the same tasks.  

The video involves a team of 5-7 year olds, sharing their thoughts on the gender pay gap.

The children are given the same task of stacking cups or separating coloured beads.

Then they are given a reward – two chocolate coins for the girls and three for the boys.

This leaves the kids confused, with the girls disappointed and wondering why they have not been rewarded fairly.

Then they discover the truth - that it is the way the worl works.

All of the children within the campaign are shocked, with one saying: “I did not know that."

The kids discuss how unfair it is with the solution to simply tell every boss in the world: “Girls and boys are the same – you know that!”

The video finishes with: “Kids get it, why don’t we” - #endthepaygap

Watch below the kids reacting to the gender pay gap below…
