Option # 1: The Wage Gap
For this assignment, you will write an essay that addresses the following:
The wage gap between women and men in the United States is not closing, and the added dimension of race with the prisms of difference can further impact these gaps. Why?
Conduct research using academically approved sources in order to describe and explain these groups’ experiences of social class. Data to analyze include educational achievement, income, health statistics, family dynamics, and economic security. Understand also that the wage gap can often be attributed to higher paid positions (like CEOs) being occupied by more men than women, or more whites than people of color.
- Write a 3-4 page paper, not including the required title and reference pages.
- Your paper must be properly cited and formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements. Be sure to include a formal reference page.
- Although this is an individual paper, you should reflect on our Discussion Forums and incorporate ideas from there, as appropriate.
- You must support your analysis with at least two scholarly references, which may include resources from this course. Sources such as Wikipedia, USA Today, Fox News, or MSNBC News will not be accepted. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these sources.
