UP ADHYAY 1 VIRALKUMAR UPADHYAY PROFESSOR WILLIAM K. GOREE BMGT-2700 SECTION-002 03/22/2010 CHAPTER FIVE INTERNAT ASSIGNMENT Read an article on pay equity fact sheet or go on Google and find an article on equal pay. Summarize the article and agree or disagree with the viewpoint. Equal pay act was passed more than 40 years ago. According to it every person, independent of the gender and ethnicity or race should have an equal pay. Women and men are considered equal and they must have the same pay according to this law. Thus the law states that men and women must be given equal pay for equal work in the same establishment. The jobs need not be identical, but they must be substantially equal. It is job content, not job titles that would determine whether jobs are substantially equal or  not. Unfortunately this is not the scenario. There is a lot of prejudice and inequality on the basis of gender. If a man earns a dollar for a job and if exactly same work is done by a woman then she is just paid 77 cents!
