The divide destroying women’s lives in “progressive” 2023
Throughout my life (and I’m sure yours too) we’ve all heard about the massive “gender pay gap”. But how much do we know about it? And how does it affect the lives of women only? Occasionally we see this important topic popping up on the social networks when it comes to the small details of this harmful problem. With many people calling 2023 the “year of change,” there is an unfortunate and unequal pay gap that has had a tremendous impact on many people’s lives.
Since most employees look forward to their annual bonus; However, some women don’t feel the same excitement. Men are paid higher premiums than women with a shocking 35% increase in the annual supplement. This is unacceptable as women in equal positions continue to be underpaid compared to their peers. Discrimination in the workplace continues to spread across the globe, for example in China women earn on average just 71.57% of what their male counterparts earn. In 2020, women in America made 83 cents for every dollar a man made. There is not a single country in the world that has closed the wage gap, despite being labeled as “progressive”.
Virgin Atlantic’s head of people product design told me in a recent interview that Virgin Atlantic is struggling to address the gender pay gap in the workplace. This proves that there are several UK companies that value their people and their pay; Virgin Atlantic is a prime example of this. However, there is still a huge pay gap, which means that all companies are aligning and breaking this gender equal pay bias.
In summary, as a society we all do a lot to break stereotypes in the workplace and come together to empower women in the workplace, no matter what job they are in. So the next time you see the “Gender Pay Gap” title on your social media, think about how you might have seen this in your school, work, or other pay area and how you, as an individual, have the power to change any To break injustice in this “progressive world of 2023”.
