DATA COLLECTION PAPER 2 Review of Literature Team A notes a real wage index in review of week two’s assignment, data collection of wages and wage earners. As Team A continues to examine data and investigate various references, irregularities within the data such as the consistency of different ratios between reservations and the marketing of wages seem to back the data. Mounting evidence shows the gaps between male and female wages are closing even as they do exist, not only in wages but also in characteristics of the job being held. Around the mid 1950’s the ratio of median pay for women compared to men was around 60 percent. It started to rise around the 1970’s and reached approximately 70 percent by the 1990’s, showing the gender ratio was currently on the rise. The ratio exceeded 75 percent by 1997. The last 20 years have experienced a movement into higher paid occupations and an increase in women’s labor market- critical roles for increasing women’s wages relative to men. With changes in family statuses, organizational structures, and unions, these situations closed the gap, and placed women on pay scales equal to men. Heightened economic benefits from knowledge, skills, abilities, and increasing inequality have themselves made wider the gap in pay. The articles researched in week three apply to the research topic because the team previously scrutinized information pertaining to wages and wage earners, both male and female. New statistics show how the gap has decreased, and the Legislation for the Equal Pay Act effective June 11, 1964 helped to legalize equal pay for qualified women who were previously receiving lower wages than men. This act advocated equal pay especially for women who functioned in the same job positions as men.
