Week 5 Discussions Topic: closing the pay gap and equal pay legislation The gender pay gap in the U.S. is discussed in this week's learning modules and in the textbook. A variety of efforts have been made to close the gap around the world, including the following: Ontario, Canada, passed the Pay Equity Act. Here are the details: https://www.payequity.gov.on.ca/en/LearnMore/Tools/Pages/guide_to_act2.aspx In the United Kingdom, a gender pay gap reporting law recently started to produce publicly available data, the implications of which are playing out. Here are some details: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jan/01/gender-pay-gap-2018-brought-transpar ency-will-2019-bring-change In 2021, the Paycheck Fairness Act was introduced (again) in the U.S. Congress. The House passed the bill. In 2022, the Senate still has not taken it up.

Please answer the following questions: Do you think the U.S. should pursue these sorts of laws? Why or why not? Please draw upon the Canadian, UK, and US bills/laws above in your response. What features of these bills/laws do you find particularly appealing or unappealing? Include something specific from at least two of the bills/laws in your response. Is passing laws enough? Should we work on other fronts, like unpaid domestic labor (e.g., childcare, cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc.) that disproportionately falls to women, inequitably paying part-time workers a lower hourly rate than full-time workers for the same work, and a lack of work-place flexibility to accommodate family/work balance? Please explain your thinking. Take a moment to do a bit of research (via the library or via the internet). Find a model city, state, country, or work place that has implemented something you believe should be duplicated or scaled-up. Please share it with the class and explain why you selected and how it will help close the pay gap.
