Between 1997 and 2017 the gander pay gap was the lowest in November 2004 at 14.9% and the highest in November 2014 at 18.5% (Australian Government). Home, Work & Family As shown above in the graph, gender pay gap also limits the women’s ability to save for retirement in other ways. Having a lower earning over a women’s career can result on a smaller savings for when they do decide to retire. Lower earnings during a women’s career can lead to smaller retirement plans, lower social security and financial assistance. It is a fact that women 65 or older are five times more likely to receive assistance for financial needs, and typically draw twice as much income for assistance than men
The fact also arises that women not only suffer from lack of recognition for the work they do in households but also for their work in their jobs. Women work as much as men, if not more. When both paid and unpaid work such as household chores and caring for children are taken into consideration, women work longer hours than men—an average of 30 minutes a day longer in developed countries and 50 minutes in developing countries. This is known as second shift, where women not only work at their jobs but also come back home and complete their household chores. However their contribution remains minimum due to unequal wage pay and lack of consideration given to household chores.
They saw a huge increase of loans from minorities and low – to moderate –income earners. To encourage Countrywide’s market share, the salespeople received extra incentives to approve loans that were considered unsafe. By 2007, Countrywide noticed the heavy losses from their reduced profits, which developed from doubling of foreclosures. They had to lay off up to 20,000 of their employees. Countrywide tried to encourage their customers to refinance or adjust their loans so they can afford to make future payments to their existing loans.
America has over the past decades tried to eradicate poverty through public supported programs. Some have been more successful in providing assistance to poorest among us than others. To fight poverty the focus must move to the middle class to make clear to that their interest has more in common to help raise up the poor than enriching themselves thus giving up power to the top 1%. To illustrate in 2014 roughly 15% of the population, 46.7 million human beings, lives below the poverty line. That is an increase from 11% in 2000 according to US Census Bureau data.
The main argument against refugee immigration is that it would strain our already suffering economy. However, there is proof that immigration would actually benefit the United States. Immigrants, according to the Small Business Administration, are 30% more likely than native citizens to start a small business, and total, 18% of small-business owners in the U.S are immigrants. Immigrant-owned small businesses also create jobs, 4.7 million in 2007 to be exact, according to the Fiscal Policy Institute.
• The undervaluing of women’s work – Frequently, women earn less than men for doing jobs of equal value. Jobs needing similar skills and qualifications seem to be more poorly paid when they are dominated by women. For example, the (mainly female) cashiers in a supermarket usually earn less than the (mainly male) employees involved in stacking shelves and other more physical tasks. • Women struggle to manage work and family life - Family, care and domestic responsibilities are not equally shared. Far more women than men choose to take parental leave.

Their lives were not just a constant cycle taking care of the household, reproducing, and caring for the children. There were similarities between the lives of peasant women and noble women, yet still a few distinctions that make a huge impact on how various their lifestyles
All across the world being born a woman means that far less opportunities are available and from birth some woman are not provided with basic education which in turn leads to these women looking for jobs as unskilled workers such as domestic workers or agricultural workers as they are uneducated and illiterate. The pay for these jobs are very low and many of these women are mistreated in their places of
Some of the barriers to women’s access to and control of productive assets across different contexts include lack of legal provision and inadequate implementation at both the national and local or community levels. (World Suevey, 2009; Dickson and Bangpan, 2012; GENDERNET, 2012; Commission on the Status of Women: Fifty-eigth session, 2014). Gender disparities in labour market conditions such as wage earnings, job positions and work benefits significantly affect women’s ability to own properties and engage them to create wealth for themselves. Not only are they paid lower salaries than men, women are also mostly employed for the low paying jobs and have restrained access to family income leaving them at a greater poverty risk. (Soni, 2008; GENDERNET, 2012; Meinzen-Dick,
