These are all working class jobs, but how can one define these jobs as working class? The answer is power the people have at these jobs. There may be a lot of differences in these millions of jobs done throughout the working class, but there’s similarities as well that make the working class the majority of the nation. “ For all their differences, working class people share a common place in production, where they have relatively little control over the pace or content of their work, and arn’t anybodies boss” ( Zweig 3). The working class shares common situations in the workplace such as they are not any bodies boss, barley have any power, and are vulnerable.
350,000 women were in unions in 1914, but 600,000 by 1918. Although many women found themselves earning good wages for the first time during the war, women were always paid less than men, and were not promoted as often as their male colleagues. The war did lead to real changes in social attitudes. Women had more freedom after the war. Their clothing became much simpler, with shorter skirts and sleeves.
Before doing the searching I also thought executive secretary is paid highest; however, I thought the lowest payment belongs to electrical engineer. Because I thought electrical engineer employees just work by manual labour, do not need high education and do not have much responsibilities and subordinates. That is the reason I thought their salary is low. 2. Three jobs do not have much different bonuses as a percentage of their base salaries.
Karen Olsson talks about how an American cannot live on the wages walmart offers their hourly employees. Jennifer Mclaughlin has worked for Wal-Mart for over three years now and earns $16,800 a year. “The way they pay you, you cannot make it by yourself without having a second job or someone to help you, unless you have been there 20 years or you’re a manager.” She states that Wal-Mart managers force her to work overtime, off the clock, and that practice is not only localized to her store only, it is a nationwide practice. “Wal-Mart settled similar lawsuits involving 67,000 workers in New Mexico and Colorado, reportedly paying more than $50 million.” (Olson, They Say I Say pg. 348) In a way to make sure unions do not come into Wal-Mart the have interrogated workers, confiscated union literature, and fired union supported all in violation of the law.

During their research they found out that in 72% of cases men actually did housework other than the washing up every week. Young & Willmott see this as a positive move and described it as a “march of progress.” By this they mean that men in the past had been lagging behind women in terms of domestic labour and gender roles but now have caught up and are more or less equal or symmetrical. Feminists have severely criticised the work of Young &Willmott, one feminist in particular Ann Oakley claims that, “housework is exclusively allocated to women.” She describes housework as, “unpaid, isolated and makes women economically dependent on men.” Hobson takes this a step further by saying “housework is repetitive compulsive and endless often with no physical separation between work & Leisure for the housewife.” Oakley claimed that full time housewives spent an average of 77 hours per week on housework. Oakley argued that although 72% of men do housework was impressive this was only based on the question “do you help at least once a week with the cleaning for example making the bed or ironing? The problem is a male who ironed a jumper once a week would be included in this 72% even though they are hardly making a contribution to the housework at all.
A woman working in the same job as a man will usually earn less, despite the fact that she may have the same or better training, education, and skills required for the job ("Study Shows Female Managers in Britain Earn Less than Men, and Equality Could Be 57 Years Away." 2010). Women are consistently discriminated against in the workplace. Women only make 60 percent or less than their male counterparts in the same job position (Louis, 2010). Throughout history men are seen as the “strong/tough ones”; the belief is that they should be paid more than women in order to support their families (Loney, 2005).

If a woman does not appear physically able she may not get hired for jobs that require physical strength. Another form of discrimination is when a woman who has the same job title as a man and responsibilities is paid less. According to a 2010 study, women only earned 77 cents to every dollar men earned, this in fact shows that there is gender discrimination and a gap that needs to be resolved. Women in the workforce
In studies provided by the Census Bureau, women proved to have worked more hours per week than men. Vanderkam feels the pay gap is reasonable considering women are beginning to work more hours, but some Americans argue that social inequality is now in favor of women. America is always going to have competitiveness with employee wages. While this is seen as social inequality, it sometimes is morally fair. If women are working more hours than men, many people find it reasonable for women to make more money.
