Do you think women should be paid equally as men when it comes to labor intensive jobs?
Of course. If a woman is performing a job to the requirements of her employer, she should be on the same pay scale as her male counterparts.
If she's doing the same job, and performing the same amount of work, yes. Any two people doing equal work should receive equal pay.
If people are doing the same exact job then the pay should fall within the same range. I mention (range) because there are often other factors that go into making a salary offer to an employee.
Naturally the goal for most companies is to get the biggest bang for the fewest bucks. They usually have a salary comparison range to work from. However factors such as the state of the economy when one was hired or their years of experience, education/certifications, excellent job references, and awards for past achievement can cause an employer to offer one candidate a higher salary over another one.
Unfortunately a candidate's (previous salary history) will likely play a major role in determining how much is being offered. It would be unlikely for someone who earned $30k to find a job doing the same thing and be offered $50k at the new company. Most candidates are happy with a $5k- $7k raise if they could get it.
If a person was hired during a booming economy and there was a "shortage of qualified candidates" to fill positions they probably were offered a higher salary than someone who may have gotten a job in 2009 when unemployment was at 10% with a huge supply of qualified candidates available.
Lastly not everyone attempts to (negotiate) for a higher salary offer.
Some people are afraid to ask for more money just as some hate the negotiating process involved with purchasing a car or home.
Oftentimes they accept whatever the offer is and walk away "content" (until) they learn someone else got a much better deal.
yes definitely, women and men abilities are on the same par, bosses can't judge a person sex gender to pay the salary
