total compensation class 200-300 words answer discussion

Project Description:

“according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics, in 2008 full-time female employees earned only 80 percent of what full-time male employees earned….however, despite the public fanfare surrounding equal pay for equal work, decades’ worth of academic research uniformly indicates that, at best, only a minuscule proportion of the gender wage gap is attributable to paying women less than men for doing the same work. in fact, scholarly research indicates that the gender wage gap derives largely from the fact that females, on average, tend to work in lower-paying jobs while men, on average, tend to work in higher-paying jobs. this differential occupational distribution of men and women largely accounts for the gender wage gap among full-time workers.
while academic researchers generally agree that different male/female occupational patterns cause the largest portion of the gender wage gap, they do not agree on the extent to which that occupational pattern itself reflects discrimination against women in hiring and promotion… recognizing that the relative concentration of female workers in lower-paying jobs is largely to blame for the gender wage gap, some civil rights organizations have proposed the adoption of a “comparable worth” pay system. these groups argue that employers’ basic wage structures are discriminatory because they systematically devalue work performed primarily by women and just as systematically overvalue work performed primarily by men” (shrm, 2008).
discuss all aspects of the above academically, professionally, and from the viewpoint of the hr professional. is this inequity a result of occupational patterns, pay discrimination for men and women in the same jobs, or undervaluing professions largely occupied by women while overvaluing those largely occupied by men? in other words, are the low-paying jobs that women go into low-paying because women go into them? what's the responsibility borne by organizations, if anything? if you state that there’s no pay discrimination, why do females - in the same career field and with the same experience as men - earn less than males, as seen in the attached article?
