The problem of inequality has been around since the beginning of time, whether it is regarding race, gender, or something else. For women everything has always come later. Men had always had the first opportunity at so many things like in voting, the military, and for many higher position jobs. With all of this, today we see the issue of the wage gap, men and women are not getting paid equally with the same job or amount of education. There is still the stereotype that because men are the main “breadwinners” that therefore they should get paid more. If both men and women have the same amount of education and skill, job, and families to feed then they should be paid the same amount, but not many people feel that way.Though both men and women should get equal pay there are some people who disagree with that. Phillips (2017) tells us about one republican who thinks that the way men and women get paid now is the traditional way, men have always gotten more, and that due to this, things shouldn’t change (p.1). This still seems to be the view many people have today, that we should simply stick to what we know or have been doing since we could remember; it is just “simple economics”. Since it has always been said that men are the “‘primary breadwinners’ of their families…paying women equally would somehow ruin the makeup of a traditional family where ‘the Mother’ remains at home raising children” (Phillips, 2017, p.1). Though they may have the education or skill, when mothers stay home to take care of their children depending on how long they’ve been away, according to Sherwood (2011) “When they return to the workplace, they inevitably have less experience than colleagues who remained. To close the gap we’d have to stop companies from looking at experience when they determine wages, or we’d have to get more dads to stay home and more moms to keep working when kids are young”. (p.2).
