Is gender pay equality still a problem?
Asked at Lawrence Public Library on March 4, 2002
“Yeah, I think it is, but it’s not high enough on my priority list to worry about it.”
“Sure it is. I taught a lesson about it once. Women still make only 76 cents of a dollar that a man makes. It’s an issue.”
“Yes, I think it’s still an issue. Statistically, there are more men in higher-paying jobs than women in the work force.”
“Personally I don’t see that men and women are being paid differently for the same job.”
