Australian Cafe Charges 'Man Tax'
A vegan cafe in Australia is charging men more than women to fight the gender pay gap, it says.
The Handsome Her cafe in Melbourne, Australia charges men an 18 percent "man tax."
"I like that it is making men stop and question their privilege a little bit," owner Alex O’Brien said.
"There’s been nothing but positivity from everyone, males and females," she added. One man even donated $50 to show his support, she related.
Not everyone was happy about the tax though. Some on social media called the policy sexist against men.
"We now raise 'awareness' and debate it with discrimination toward men… but we must have be equals to men!" one Twitter used wrote.
The cafe also gives women priority seating. Profits from the tax will go to a women's service.
