As we come to the end of Women's History Month, we are looking more on how the “pink tax” is affecting Long Islanders.
Financial Advisor Mitch Gordon says you can find these pink taxes on feminine hygiene products to everyday products like clothes.
“Generally speaking, if you take a men's suit and a women's suit, women could pay more, and that's pretty pervasive throughout marketing. It's just that there is such a profound value in appearance, especially among women, that I think the marketing is making such a push to make women actually pay more," says Gordon.
