The jobs that were available at that time for women were not the same as the ones for men. Other people during this time didn’t want to see women in the workforce. The view of genders and their roles seemed to be unrealistic to many. The women were working and they were not in the correct sphere that they should’ve been in. In the article “The Emergence of ‘Women’s Sphere’” it said, “The great majority of women never met the rigorous standard of “true womanhood" set by the Victorian middle class, nor could they ever hope to” (1).
Men take on the money-making jobs such as engineering, law, medicine, business. Mainly jobs that are always open to the economy but these jobs are not only male base jobs a woman can pursue the same job. But will be getting paid less, treated unfair, for example, if a woman is an engineer her manager might not let her lift certain things because she a women or task to take on that day will be done by a male because it was too dangerous she may hurt herself. The male judging the female strength her ability to be strong but she could be stronger than the other worker the manager may never
What should matter is how hard you work and what amount of work you can get done. This suggests that whether you get paid more or less it should not be determined as if you 're a female or male because if women work just as hard as men they should get the same pay. Women 's History in America Presented by Women 's International Center states observers that, “Throughout most of history women generally have had fewer legal rights and career opportunities than men”(Par. 1). This quote shows that through much of history, women have worked just as hard as men women have not been treated as equals as men have because they were seen as something less than what men were someone that did not have the same skills or same abilities to work just as hard.Definitely It should not matter if you’re a female or a male you should pay the same amount of money if both do the same amount of work.It is not right to pay men more than women just because women are seen to be weaker when women can do the same job as males can.Women should be treaded equally and given the same
Women make 77¢ to every dollar a man makes for the same job per week, that’s the false statement that miss leaded politicians and that many feminist try to state as fact to the masses without telling the whole truth. In my opinion the wage gap is used to make the need of feminism stronger by making people think that there is still a problem with equal pay due to gender. The wage gap is the idea that if a man and a woman were hired for the same position, the women would make 23% less than the man per week. The entirety of the argument has been proven to be a lie time after time again, but many feminists continue to advertise and protest it as fact, but they never seem to teach the full truth behind it. One of the largest problem with the argument
America is at an impasse with itself over the current unemployment rate and questions about where all the jobs are going. According to Elizabeth Dwoskin, most of these job positions, considered dirty, are being filled by immigrants and not Americans. Americans have found themselves in an uproar about migrant workers taking jobs away from them, but it seems they are hypocritical as they refuse to fill these jobs themselves. In her article “Why Americans Won 't Do Dirty Jobs,” Dwoskin implies that Americans are too lazy to do hard work but complain when immigrants fill these positions. It seems that even when Americans are faced with the threat of homelessness they claim they cannot find any jobs, or rather, they refuse to do the dirty ones.
Although many women did not question that way of life, there were some who hated it. In the article “Women and the Great depression” in the Gilmer Lehrman Institute of American History, Susan Ware wrote, “Women who sought relief or paid employment risked public scorn or worse for supposedly taking jobs and money away from more deserving men.” That quotation puts into perspective how women were treated as inferior to men. Women have also come a long way from the 1930s; they are now able to get almost any job they want. However, there still is a wage gap, and many men think they are better than women. In conclusion, women were not treated as equals to men, but they were still treated better than
Although many claim that there is gender equality in the United States, it is untrue. Out of all the women inequality issues Bernie Sanders hopes to fix if he becomes president, unequal wage and maternity leave are the ones that entice me the most. Women are faced with inequality of receiving a low working wage compared to men for doing the exact same job as them. Women who work full-time only earn 78 cents for every dollar a man earns, which is very unjust. Therefore, increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour would remarkably boost the wages of more than 15 million women which would help close the wage
In today 's society not every person has equal opportunity. In 2005, gender pay gaps rose from sixty percent to eighty percent, since then the pay gap has remained unchanged. Every person should have an equal opportunity in, education, work, and even being able to life in the what we call “free world”. Working towards their goals has become something that is not even achievable in certain gender, races or even class statues. Unfortunately, inequality in gender and race are some of the reasons that the American dream is slowly
In America, we have this thought that all people should be able to pick themselves out of poverty and despair if they work hard enough. As reasonable as this sounds on its own, the reality is much different. Those people who advocate for the above, more often than not, fail to take into account the stress and desolation that being in poverty forces upon you. Now, the gender pay gap is not crushingly depressing, but it is rather disheartening and fails to live up to another ideal of our Founders. Women cannot achieve social mobility when they lack the basic means to raise themselves up, money.
