There's an app on the way that helps you split up the dinner bill with some adjustments for race and gender income inequalities.
"Equipay: Reparations one meal at a time," said Equipay creator and comedian Luna Malbroux.
The app, called Equipay, is essentially a satirical statement about income gaps in the U.S. For instance, when using the app, women would only pay 78 cents for every $1 men pay of the bill.
