Date Created: 10/10/16
In President Obama’s 2016 State of the Union address, he speaks to the inequality of pay in the United States workforce – specifically, the pay gap among genders. Women, on average, earn about seventy-nine cents to every man’s dollar while working full time. With a twenty-one percent gap that has slowly been closing, one must ask what causes such a gap. Over the past several decades the number has grown from forty-one percent to twenty-one due to the slowing of men’s earnings growth and an increase in woman labor force and education participation. Difference in choices between genders, such as college majors and care providing, add to the gap. For example, nursing has been considered a mainly female-dominated field, but engineering, a higher paying job than nursing, has been considered more male-dominated. Some of these choices come from the practicality; many women need flexible hours over better pay given children and parents in need of attention at home. Yet even this decision has cultural influence, as women are more expected to provide care in the traditional family structure. Females have no choice in certain instances when attempting to fix this gap, rather society as a whole must fix the stigma surrounding women in the workplace. In settings where the social attitude toward women in the workforce is negative, the result is a larger, more prominent gap. In such a developed country, President Obama and many others’ remarks on the gender pay gap must be studied to see why and how the gap exists.
