In Pursuit of Equal Work For Equal Pay

The reason I chose this topic is that Equal pay for equal work is the concept of labor rights that individuals in the same workplace be given equal pay. It is most commonly used in the context of sexual discrimination, about the gender pay gap. Equal pay relates to the full range of payments and benefits, including basic pay, non-salary payments, bonuses, and allowances. Some countries have moved faster than others in addressing equal pay. women were often paid less than their male counterparts for the same labor, whether for the explicit reason that they were women or under another pretext. The principle of equal pay for equal work arose at the same part of first-wave feminism, with early efforts for equal pay being associated with nineteenth-century Trade Union activism in industrialized countries: for example, a series of strikes by unionized women in the UK in the 1830s.
