Why Women Are Paid Less, The Value of the Job Drops Once a Women Takes the Job
I was talking to a friend the other night about gender based pay disparity. He mentioned the research that the disparity is due to women taking on jobs that allow them to take care of their families and that those jobs are paid less. But, I feel the disparity is due to a much more complex set of variables. One contributing factor that is not surprising is that, "Once women start doing a job, “It just doesn’t look like it’s as important to the bottom line or requires as much skill,” and the women in that job are paid less. Here is the article that explains that: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/20/upshot/as-women-take-over-a-male-dominated-field-the-pay-drops.html?_r=0
Followed by another article that debunks the debunking of the pay gap between women and men.
