the gender paygap


Really Dumb




the gender paygap
Sure! The gender pay gap is when boys and girls, men and women are not paid the same amount of money for doing the same job. This means that even if a girl and a boy have the same job and do the same work, the girl might get paid less just because she is a girl. For example, let’s say a boy and a girl both work at a store as cashiers. They both ring up customers’ purchases and help with stocking shelves. Even though they are doing the same work, the boy might get paid more than the girl just because he is a boy. This is not fair! One verifiable fact is that in the United States, women make about 82 cents for every dollar a man makes. This means that for every $1 a man makes, a woman only makes about 82 cents. That’s not right! Think about it like this: if you and your friend both did the same amount of chores at home, but your friend got paid more just because they were a boy, how would that make you feel? It’s important for boys and girls to be treated equally and paid fairly for the work they do.
