Equal Pay: A Step Towards Gender Equality

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Although the U.S.A. is a free country and the "land of opportunities" for all, many women have and are still being affected by gender inequality, especially when it comes to salaries between men and women. Statistics state how every woman earns 79 cents for every dollar that a man earns, therefore women are earning only about 78.3% of a man’s income.

This implies how women are treated differently from men even though they may work in the same job position/major. It is important to understand that both women and men devote much of their time in their jobs by working overnight shifts and put a lot of efforts in achieving success, so it wouldn’t be fair to value one gender over the other.

This undeniable wage discrimination that occurs in the United States should most definitely be dealt with because this can have a strong impact on people’s lives. Please sign this petition and help bring this topic of discussion to the Congress so that women can be granted the right of having equal pay as men even though this is a right that all women should have already had.
