“Pinksourcing with Kristen Bell,” is a satirical video produced by The Huffington Post that prods companies to consider “pinksourcing” (hiring women as a cheap domestic source of labor) over outsourcing labor to other countries. It suggests that pinksourcing is advantageous because women in the United States make a fraction of men’s salaries, are afforded fewer healthcare benefits, and don’t require promotions to higher positions.
