This is an issue which not only seems to never go away, but also never seems to gain the attention necessary for something to be done about it. In fact, according to a study performed by TIME via SurveyMonkey, nearly half of the men who took a survey  believe that the gender pay gap is made up. The purpose of this literature review is to analyze the gender pay gap in the modern day, to bring to light the causes the gender pay gap and the ways it impacts people, and lastly, to explore options which could work towards the goal of equal pay for men and women. An in Depth Analysis on the Gender Wage Gap: A Review of Literature Inequality in the workplace is nothing new and unfortunately has become a normality in the modern day workplace. From women not advancing in position due to gender, a factor which is out of their control, to being harassed by coworkers or higher-ups. These are only a few of the many inequalities women must face on a day-to-day basis, however, one inequality which goes unnoticed most of the time is that of the gender pay gap. It is said that women only make two-thirds for every dollar a man makes. When taking a lifetime’s worth of work, that two -thirds difference in pay can equal up to $589,472 (Wilson, 2019). That half a million dollar difference usually goes unnoticed because of how gradual the amount accumulates. The issue does not affect all women equally though, it is shown that women of minorities actually have a larger disparity in pay than white women (Eileen Patten, 2019). However, regardless of all the statistical evidence supporting the authenticity of the gender pay gap, there are numerous  An in Depth Analysis on the Gender Wage Gap: A Review of Literature amounts of  people who doubt the pay gap’s existence altogether and what can be done in order to fix it. In order for one to understand the gender pay gap and its effect, these four questions must  be taken into consideration: ●   Is the gender pay disparity a real issue in our society today? ●   What are the causes of the gender pay gap? ●   Who is affected by the gender pay gap? ●   What are some actions that can be taken in order to remedy this issue? This review of literature will analyze whether the gender pay gap is a real issue and identify some actions that can be taken to address the issue, as well as identify the causes and the effects the gender pay gap has on the people who are either directly or indirectly impacted by it.  Is the gender pay disparity a real issue in our society today? It might be difficult to search for remedies to a problem that it is still in debate about its existence. Whether the gender pay gap is a real issue or not in our society is inconclusive and lacks solid evidence to prove either point; it mostly depends on each person’s opinion and  backed arguments regarding the topic. Some may argue that there is a significant difference  between the rate men and women are paid. The uncontrolled gender pay gap, which measures the median salary for all men and all women, shows that women make only $0.79 cents for every dollar men make in 2019 (https://www.payscale.com/data/gender-pay-gap#section02); this argument may be used to prove t hat disparity in wages of men and women is an issue in today’s society. The issue that the uncontrolled wage gap really represents is that women are less likely to hold high-level, high-paying jobs than men, this leading to the opportunity gap between men and women.  An in Depth Analysis on the Gender Wage Gap: A Review of Literature But others may refer instead to the controlled gender pay gap, which measures the median salary of men and women with the same job and qualifications. This data shows that the difference in wages between equally qualified men and women with equal job positions differ by women making $0.98 cents for every dollar men make, thus narrowing the gap to argue that it is not a real issue in today’s society.   (https://www.payscale.com/data/gender-pay-gap#section02)  According to an online poll conducted in March of 2019 and revealed by TIME, from almost 9,000 American adults, 46% of men believe that the pay gap “is made up to serve a political  purpose” instead of being a legitimate issue. And the 24% of men aged between 18 and 34 say that reports on the gender pay gap and claims that men and women are paid unequally are “fake news,” which was one of the options provided in the poll (Steinmetz, 2019). The gender pay gap could be an issue for public policy even though there is no clear evidence whether it is a bigger problem. To better understand this issue, various causes must be
