Getting Even: Why Women Don’t Get Paid Like Men–And What to Do About It

Getting Even: Why Women Don't Get Paid Like Men--And What to Do About ItA WORKING WOMAN EARNS 77 CENTS FOR EVERY MALE DOLLAR.

In the twenty-first century, the gender wage gap still affects the daily life of women throughout the country, at every economic level, from cashier to CEO. Is it fair? No. Can it be stopped? Absolutely.

In this intelligently argued and carefully researched book, Evelyn Murphy, Ph.D., examines how much women (and their families) lose over a lifetime to the wage gap, knocks down the myth that women “choose” to make less, and documents the widespread discrimination that’s holding down women’s pay.

But here’s the good news: The wage gap can be closed. Having served as an economist, politician, public official, and corporate officer, Murphy has a 360-degree view of the problem — and of the solution. Read this book — and get even.

Low-Wage Work in the Netherlands (Russell Sage Foundation Case Studies of Job Quality in Advanced Economies)

Low-Wage Work in the Netherlands (Russell Sage Foundation Case Studies of Job Quality in Advanced Economies)The Dutch economy has often been heralded for accomplishing solid employment growth within a generous welfare system. In recent years, the Netherlands has seen a rise in low-wage work and has maintained one of the lowest unemployment rates in the European Union. Low-Wage Work in the Netherlands narrows in on the causes and consequences of this new development. The authors find that the increase in low-wage work can be partly attributed to a steep rise in the number of part-time jobs and non-standard work contracts–46 percent of Dutch workers hold part-time jobs. The decline in full-time work has challenged historically powerful Dutch unions and has led to a slow but steady dismantling of many social insurance programs from 1979 onward. At the same time, there are hopeful lessons to be gleaned from the Dutch model: low-wage workers benefit from a well-developed system of income transfers, and many move on to higher paying jobs. Low-Wage Work in the Netherlands paints a nuanced picture of the Dutch economy by analyzing institutions that both support and challenge its low-wage workforce.
