The belief that there is a difference in the wadges paid between men and women for the same job. Mostly argued by feminists, an American standpoint is 77 cent to 1 dollar is one of the differences between the men and women wadges (men portrayed with the 1 dollar to the women portrayed with amounts lower than 1 dollar) although the amount argued can change between many people this is the one most commonly used. Maternity leave and difference in jobs/time in jobs was not accounted for in the gender pay stats that officially started the argument. The reason the gap had such a radicalized difference is the diference in time and jobs as men are more likely to do more overtime and take jobs like high up construction. In the 1960's a law was passed in America making it illegal to pay certain genders differently for the same job, also if as an employer you could pay women less for the same job then you wouldnt hire men because they would cost more to do the same.
Normal people: the pay gap is a myth
