Unformatted text preview: 1 W \ symptoms of an unfair workplace (Reskin). It seems to me that the audits Jones proposes can be used to fight this gender pay gap, not only as a means to keep aggregate wages equal, but to ensure that the gap of oppurtunity is lessened as well. I think this is important because the gender pay gap does not only mean a per job wage to me. We must also consider that if there are less Oppurtunities for women then they cannot rise as high in terms of maximum earnings, creating a secondary level of pay gap. The only drawback to these audits is that “businesses are to be burdened with a requirment to carry out gender pay audits”, but Jones asserts “business is critical \‘w to recovery (J ones( 20). Since audits may be megs-til, I look to the proposition by Michael fw we“? 3“ WK amt? use autvhnug‘h Wit-L ills Stutchbury in The Australian.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
