Description


Why does the gender of the worker factor into financial compensation? Why are some forms of labor quantified but others, such as domestic work, not? What impact does union membership have on the wage gap? This anthology interrogates the conflicts at the heart of these questions, and others, from diverse points of view. Students gain insight into the patterns of discrimination at every level of employment. Two essays hotly debate the role of the C.E.O. in setting standards; with one essay finding that executives with daughters pay their female employees higher wages than those without. The other essay states that regardless, this will not close the gender gap.
