The paper believes Karl earns roughly $2.5m annually, compared to Lisa’s $1m.

And sure, we LOVE Karl. Possibly too much. And he’s all about gender equality – he wore the same suit every day for a year to prove there's one hell of a double standard between his fashion choices compared to his female colleagues. Legend.

But it doesn’t change the fact he’s doing the Exact. Same. Job. as Lisa.

As angry as this has made us, it’s a good little indicator that it’s happening to everyone – even Lisa frickin’ Wilkinson - and we can call out companies on such blatant, shitty disparity.
