    National Equal Pay Day is TODAY --> Gender Pay Gap Survey

    Posted: 4/14/15 2:05 PM

    In honor of today, April 14, 2015, being Equal Pay day, please take my survey on the gender pay gap!

    Those elegible to take the survey: current Xavier undergraduate students ages 18-22.

    I would very much appreciate it! http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/genderpaygap

    Here's what it's about:
    Women still face unequal pay in the workplace today. In a modern society where women make up nearly half of the labor force, pay inequality remains a problem. My research paper will consider which factors are responsible for the continuing wage disparity in the United States, focusing specifically on whether gender discrimination, gendered career choices, or other factors are responsible for the gap. I look at the structural, cultural, and personal explanations of the gender pay gap, paying particular attention to how college experiences contribute to the pay gap. College can reflect, reinforce, or contest trends in broader society. The college years are formative in terms of education, skill development, job choice, and attitudes about work and the role that men and women play in the workforce. Understanding the gender pay gap and how it is shaped at the college level could help us better understand how the gap develops and how to fix it. 

    In my study, I focus specifically on undergraduate men and women’s attitudes about gender roles in society and in the workplace. I conduct a survey, modeled after Pew Research’s October 2013 national survey, to assess men and women’s attitudes about gender inequality and their experiences in the workplace. The survey will be administered to a sample of Xavier University undergraduate students, ranging in age from 18 to 22 years old. The goal of the survey is to assess how college-age men’s and women’s work experiences during college shape their attitudes about gender roles in the workplace and career choices.
