Females are prescribed psychiatric drugs at much higher rates than men. Females also tend to be more emotional (wide generalization). Processing emotions takes time, and time spent on emotional work is time NOT spent generating revenue. Ultimately, the trend of medicating female emotion (and emotion in general) is a money-driven one.

We all hate surge pricing, but it's a great way for Uber and its drivers to capture more value. What if GrubHub, Starbucks, etc. charged customers more during peak hours in order to pay service workers better? Could we ever break the cycle of reliance on cheap labor?
