A holiday we’d just as soon not celebrate

A regular reader tips us off about a missed holiday:

Fair Pay Day [was] Tuesday, April 28, which symbolizes the day in 2009 when the average woman’s wages will finally catch up with those paid to the average man in 2008.”

But what could be more appropriate than to say, “Happy belated Fair Pay Day!” when fair pay itself is so incredibly late in coming?  And not just in the wicked for-profit world, either: as long as women are consigned to leading small nonprofits while men lead the large ones, we’re going to continue to make less–a lot less–than our brothers in arms.
