Yes, there is a wage disparity between men and women. If you look at any position that men and women work, you will see there is about a dollar disparity between women and men where men get paid more than women. This is not right or fair and is discriminatory.
Wage disparity is a very real and present thing. Many times women are paid less than men for jobs that they are both equally qualified for. I think, in general, that the world is very harsh to women and that it has always been that way. Wage disparity is real and frightening.
Studies have shown that there are still wage disparities between men and women, however the gap is fairly small, and many employers no longer follow this practice. If you'll recall, Wal-Mart was sued and paid out hefty sums of money for this exactly problem. Overall, I think it has been resolved. I believe overall income gaps between poor and rich are far more important at this point.
Unfortunately, wage disparity is a huge issue between men and women in the United States. The wage differences are highly evident in many sectors of employment, especially corporate America. With that in mind, these discrepencies need to be remedied as soon as possible. There's no reason men should earn more than women for the same jobs.
Wage disparity does exist between men and women. With passing of time, this gap is closing but it still exists. More women are being paid about equal to the same job that a man does. Most women are finally demanding this and causing the gap to close. I feel that this should have always been like this.
It is well known that women make less then me in the corporate arena. Women work just as hard if not harder depending on who they are working for and still make less. There are still those born a generation ago that still hold on to values and beliefs that women are not equal to men.
Women, even today, are often paid less than the average male. In some companies and areas the gap is close, but overall women are still getting paid less and recognized less than men in the workforce. It is on the right track though, so maybe some day everyone will be paid equally.
I can't stand idiots who go "IT IS KNOWN THAT WOMEN MAKE LESS MONEY THAN MEN IN THE WORKPLACE BECAUSE PENIS"
Here we go want women to overall take home the same money as men maybe try getting the same job as men and you will earn the same!!
As all educated people know pay discrimination based on gender has been illegal since 1963
Equal Pay Act of 1963
"No employer having employees subject to any provisions of this section [section 206 of title 29 of the United States Code] shall discriminate, within any establishment in which such employees are employed, between employees on the basis of sex by paying wages to employees in such establishment at a rate less than the rate at which he pays wages to employees of the opposite sex in such establishment for equal work on "
Me and the other no person are the only people that haven't said
"Yes obviously lol some study I have never seen but been told exists by laci green who ofcourse didn't link it"
No matter how many times this wage gap claim is decisively refuted by economists, it always comes back. The bottom line: the 23-cent gender pay gap is simply the difference between the average earnings of all men and women working full-time. It does not account for differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure or hours worked per week. When such relevant factors are considered, the wage gap narrows to the point of vanishing.
Wage gap activists say women with identical backgrounds and jobs as men still earn less. But they always fail to take into account critical variables. Activist groups like the National Organization for Women have a fallback position: that women’s education and career choices are not truly free—they are driven by powerful sexist stereotypes. In this view, women’s tendency to retreat from the workplace to raise children or to enter fields like early childhood education and psychology, rather than better paying professions like petroleum engineering, is evidence of continued social coercion. Here is the problem: American women are among the best informed and most self-determining human beings in the world. To say that they are manipulated into their life choices by forces beyond their control is divorced from reality and demeaning, to boot.
