Decent Essays
Women in first world countries are treated unfairly through discrimination in the workplace. No matter women’s positions in a workplace they are paid less than their male counterparts. A researcher at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and his academia colleagues researched the different compensations male and female counterparts receive. Their research concluded that, women are exposed to a decline in a company’s market value. Also on average, women’s wages pay stops growing at age thirty-nine with a typical wage of $60,000 per year. However, men’s average pay stops growing at age forty-eight with a typical wage of $95 000 per year. An increase in market profit does not increase a women’s wealth as profoundly as a man working the same position.
