For as long as we can remember pay equality has been a big issue within the workplace especially when its comes to women Equal pay has been law since 1963 But still 38 years later women are still being paid less then men Even when females have the same education skills and experienceIn the last two decades womens participation in the work force has been increasing in most areas of the world In 1996 almost 45 of women aged 15-64 in the world were employed in some way or another Female employment rates may soon be approaching those of men In the United States Canada and Scandinavian countries women now make up nearly half of the employed population In Southeast Asia women make up to 80 of the labor force and in China women make up almost 70 With facts like these it makes us wonder why if women make up most of the work force why dont women get paid the same as men Especially if women are qualified educated and able to work the same job as a man It goes back in time when women were the ones expected to stay home with the children cook and clean the house Women were never treated or respected the same as men Women were looked upon as weak uneducated and not able to fill the shoes of a man In some aspects these stereo types still exist Women are still expected to hold down women jobs for example secretaries flight attendants housekeepers and waitresses Alot of women are breaking down the stereo types by becoming doctors lawyers bankers and construction workers This only shows that women are in every way capable to fill the shoes of a man in the workplace But still why isnt the pay equal Who gives anyone the right to say a woman can not earn the same salary as a man when the same hours and amount of effort
