Girls! We Want You In The Workforce
solving the gender pay gap
THIS IS FOR A SCHOOL PROJECT. PLEASE FORGIVE SOME OF THE INCORRECT SITING.
In the past we have tried to solve the gender pay gap.
All so far, have failed.
Because most people don't believe that its an issue.
and if they know that the gap exists they think it doesn't matter.
This is not the case.
In the past we have tried to close the gender pay gap. Nothing has worked.
The reason is we don't have enough evidence. There are not enough of us
in top level jobs to prove this is an issue.
So, what are we going to do?
We, are going to encourage our daughters to pursue the jobs that are not
the cast of the stereotypes we have been molded into.
We, have to stand up for what we believe.
We have a plan, that just might work. but we can't do it alone. We need
everyone who is able, to join the team.
The Federal and state governments can only do so much. They can make
the laws, but we must help enforce them.
Another major issue with our past plans became evident in the 2013
(see cites used)
Their Solution was Voluntary.
This can cause some problems due to our first issue. If people don't think
a problem exists, why would they volunteer to fix it? Most wouldn't.
These problems, have caused the gap to stay open. We have a plan that
tries to eliminate these issues, while also trying to lower, if not eliminate,
the difference in pay between genders.
2. After increasing the data. We need to increase awareness. We need your help to make as many pamphletes, ads, psa's, and videos as you can, to help spread the word.
3. The Federal and State government need to use tgeir concurrent power of making laws, to make laws regarding the close of the gender pay gap.
If we truly are a nation of equal people this should not be a problem. We make this country what it is. So why donnt we, make it the best it can be.
