(Lee 154). Stereotypes are a major conflict in today's society also. Today the majority of women are paid less than men. With the exception of Calpurnia, and Miss Caroline the women in To Kill a Mockingbird do not get paid. All women who work today are paid, but not as much as men.
She also says that you can not put a price on talent. Many retired athletes have chronic health problems because of how much they work they bodies. Why athletes get the salaries they have is because it is should carry them past the five to fifteen years they are able to play. The amount that athletes get paid are outrageous. They make millions and even a hundred million dollars to play a sport.
This is probably due to our general perception towards men and women based on their genders. I do not see this happening as much as it used to be when men are given first hand opportunities to become managers or directors. Women are now holding positions in the workplace. Although, there have been positive changes in the workplace when women start getting the higher management positions, they are still underrepresented in organizations. There are few women in top leadership positions and many women quit from their jobs when they see that there are no opportunities for advancement.
When women realized this, they decided to go on strike and hold posters up in the streets that showed what they believed in. Quality jobs were limited for women, but especially during the Great Depression (Lewis). Women had to work even harder in the Great Depression to get quality jobs because jobs were limited in the first place. Men took jobs because they needed the money which made it difficult for the women that wanted to work and become self-reliant. This left women with the jobs that didn’t provide acceptable workspace.
Even though women were paid in low wages and given in least skilled jobs, they still wanted to go to factories to work. On the other hand, working in the factories helped women to establish their new image, they proved to all the men that they could do what men did and they could be independent. As a result, the number of working women increased by 25 percent (The Roaring Twenties, page 2). Because women in the twenties thought openly, many single and married women wanted to earn higher-paying jobs (Women’s Role in the 1920s). Since women could work by themselves, they seldom went back home.
Latina Women Are the Same As Anyone Else Being a woman in this world is hard, but being a Latina woman is even harder. Being a Latina women in the US and in Latin countries are just as equally difficult. People always talk about discrimination against African-American and their past but every one always forget about the fact that Latinas have and still face with the discrimination in their work life and in their daily life. They have studies “that show that about 3 in every 10 Hispanic worker feel that they have been discriminated against in their employment and some report being referred to with racial slurs at work while 1 in 4 feel they are paid less and have reduced career advancement prospects than their Caucasian counterparts.”(Discrimination
Gisel Mendoza March 4, 2018 Mr. Miller AP English The Outcome of Degrading a Woman Historically, women have been seen as less valuable to society. Their roles were to have children and serve their husband. Many women are often victims suffering from physical abuse and political injustices. Society portrays them as submissive and silenced. Even though now women are able to join the workforce, they are still getting paid less than men.
Women who work full-time make only seventy-seven cents for every dollar a man who works full-time makes. This difference is known as the, ‘gender wage-gap.’ Due to this gap, full-time women employees are presented with less money and job opportunities. The stereotype behind all of this is that, ‘women aren’t worth as much as men.’ This stereotype is entirely outdated and insulting. The stereotype that women aren’t worth as much as men, is false. Currently, more women attend college than men, are just as qualified to work the same jobs as men and can perform the same tasks any man can.
One type of harassment that women encounter are “male-dominated industries like construction, where women are seen as an interloper, and women experience high levels of harassment” (Golshan 2). Men have felt that women are taking their careers away from them and try to scare them away from wanting that specific career. The men have harassed women to make them feel inferior in the workplace and women feel that they cannot speak up against their actions. There are other industries that “have harassed women in low wage jobs, like hotel cleaners or farm workers, experience high levels of harassment because they do not have the bargaining power to push back” (Golshan 2). Women are scared because the level of power they do not have compared to their male co-workers.
Furthermore, this gap has been increasing and is larger than it was 20 years ago. According to this data, it is evident that the women was treated unfairly in getting paid. This gap is caused by the women’s lack of courage about asking the boss to raise the salary and the women was seemed to be less able to afford much work than the men. Then, they would be offered easier work which provided less salary. To extend, all those conclusions were based on the bias, natural sex differences and the logical fallacies.
According to data from the 2014 season, the Steelers rank sixth in highest ticket prices, with the average cost of a ticket being $328 (Reevy). Such high ticket prices result in less opportunities for new fans to attend a game because they may not be willing to spend hundreds of dollars yet. Also, these high ticket prices drive away families from attending a game. By the time a family of four buys their tickets, pays for parking, and satisfies their hunger and thirst, they could very well be $1500 in the hole. Making going a Steeler game regularly almost impossible for the average family.
