This is usually in the peak of the women’s career. This is when men mover ahead and women get left behind. This going in and out of the labour force will mean that they miss out on valuable experience and therefore lower MRP. It is not just due to having babies. Some employers won’t hire women because they know that women will leave to have children in the life and take time of work to do so, while still costing the company money.
Overall it could therefore be argued that rather than partners becoming more equal, women now have to carry a ‘dual burden’, whereby she is responsible for two jobs of unpaid or paid labour. Factors such as patriarchy and conforming to a gender script will lead to these divisions. Secondly, it could be argued that the money management within a family has an effect on the power relations between couples. Edgell argues that the reason why men are likely to take the decisions is because they earn more; women usually earn less than their husbands, and as a result of being dependant on them, have less say in the decision making. Similarly, Michelle Barrett and Mary McIntosh additionally argue that men usually make the decisions about spending on important items.
This limited the employees’ influence on policies and organization process. This became a problem with the reward and promotion process. Promotions are awarded to employees with exceptional performance evaluation. There was an implied rule that the employee must be willing to move across stores, districts, or regions as required. This put women at a disadvantage because they would not be able to pick up and move as easily as men.
As stated by Sportelli “the gender gap separates women from their male peers in the workplace, salary, and self-esteem (Sportelli, 2014). If this persists a company could see adverse effects that can suffer from eventual lack of output/productivity. If one does not feel as though they are being treated or paid fairly like other co-workers then they become less motivated to work. Equity theory deals with the input and the outcome as well as the human motives. If one feels as though things are equal among other co-workers then there tends to be more unity within a work area.
Sexism does still exist in the workplace today, not only for women but for men too, although modern day sexism is less obvious, more subtle, and harder to put your finger on. The Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (amended in 1991) prohibits an employer from discriminating with respect to compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin (Wiener, 2010). Women have always struggled with sexism since women first began to join the workforce. When women were starting to work in similar jobs as men, they were being paid significantly less than their male counterparts were. “In the article Complainant behavioral tone, ambivalent sexism, and perceptions of sexual harassment” it seeks to point out recent changes to these laws to help place what is sexual harassment.
Throughout colonial history in America, the majority of women were characterized by a stereotypical profile which classified women as financially dependent. Earning a steady income and acquiring an occupation to fulfill such an income was uncommon. Women were typically setup for this situation. They often did not earn much inheritance due to the competition with their brother siblings and consequently relied on the income of their husbands. Taking care of the home and earning an income was perceived as too much for many women.
However the cooperation cannot be smoothly all the time, whereas ideas and the way of communicating of men and women differ significantly. This could be crucial for work related results, because tensions are never effective in the workplace. This paper will review the communication way of men and women in the work place as a manager and discussed which communication way has a better influence eventually on the results of an organization. 3. Research Design 3.1 Central research question ‘Which gender type has a better influence as a manager on the results of an organization, taking in consideration the language use?’ 3.2 Sub questions 1.
This could mean working long hours, even not taking a much needed vacation. ”A lot of people believe if they do work less they’ll be seen as less committed, and in a shaky economy no one wants that”(Andrew Curry 2). According to Curry people are scared of losing a job because another one is so hard to come by. This in turn makes people feel they have to work long hours or they will be fired or forced to quite but working such long hours can mean losing out on a personal life. A real life example would be my girlfriend Summer who has worked at a restaurant since they opened.
This was mainly due to the fact that women were not allowed to work and forced to do unpaid domestic labour. This suggests that women were not being able to be independent. However, during modern day society more women are working and becoming more educated therefore meaning that women are not as economically dependent on men this is supported by radical feminist theory exploiting women for the benefit of men. Additionally, the ideological power supported by the Marxist view this was segregated since men used to make all the important decisions and women would only make the minor day to day decisions. This was mainly due to the fact that men were the only money earners within a family and sometimes would control the money providing women with allowances.
Furthermore, because women only did part of a skilled job, they were paid much less than their male counterparts. The Government attempted to push for equal pay within the workplace, but this was difficult to achieve in practise as women lacked the experience of industrial bargaining to force the issue.
