WIKI ASSIGNMENT 2 Group A Explanations of Concepts/Theories Entitlement The concept of entitlement has been mentioned as one of the possible explanations, outside of discrimination, for the clear salary gap between men and women. Entitlement is understood as the idea that men have a greater sense of worth and feel a right to high rewards. Therefore, this higher sense entitlement drives men to simply ask for more money than women, all job qualifications aside. As an example, according to a study done in 2004 by the National Committee of Pay Equity, women working full time earn 76% of the average salary that men working full time earn ( Matlin 2008, p. 218). Now incorporating the concept of entitlement and that men ask for more money then women; Matlin shows from a study done by Hogue and Yoder in 2003 that women on average asked for $7.48 compared to men asking for $10.27 for a particular job ( Matlin 2008, p. 221). This works out for that particular study that women ask for 72.8% of the salary that men do, proving that the concept of entitlement is a very viable explanation for the salary gap between men and women.
