According to recent studies by business insider, men are still getting paid more than women for the exact same job. Women of color are also largely affected by this problem, compared to white men. Women with children also suffer from this problem for they usually earn less when returning to work after leaving for a child, while this does not happen to the male society who do have children.

 

For every dollar that men earn, women earn seventy-five cents on the average. They also earn ten thousand dollars less than men do each year.  This situation has been narrowing down since the 1980’s, but it is still occurring even after the equal pay act, though women still do not earn equal earnings. In the states of Louisiana and Wyoming, men are getting paid thirty percent more than women in the average job. This is a problem due to the majority of the male society being selfish.-Jessica Dickler, CNBC.com

 

We interviewed both a man and woman with the same jobs as teachers. When we asked Ms.Jacobs, who has been working here for 14 years, had said, “Do you think it’s okay that in most states, men get paid more than women?

 

“Nope, and it will never be okay,” sadi Mrs. Jacobs

 

We then interviewed Mr. Crowell, here’s what he has to say, “How much did you get paid when you first started?  “I got paid about $30,000 a year, and now I earn about $100,000.” Mr. Crowell said. “Do you think it’s okay that in most states, men get paid more than women? “It is very unfair, especially since it’s the exact same job, though everyone here at Fremont gets equal pay.”

 

In conclusion, every woman should have to stick up for her rights to have a better life. All women that are in the workforce should always be aware and take a look at how the male society is spending their money.
