Equal pay for equal work By hannah wood

The selected generation is generation z. Generation z is similar to generations in the past like generation x because they are both technologically savy, learn quickly, and embrace diversity. They both have learned about the new technologies and the importance and efficiency of using it. They also are very good at picking up tasks quickly and learning to not judge people based on ethnicity or race, they have embraced everyone.

The generations are different because generation x seeks work and life balance. They wanted a traditional way of life with enough money to support themselves, while generation z is very self-directed, independent, and more informed. They tend to live life to the fullest and not depend on others to be successful in life.

Their leadership styles are similar because they both offer learning opportunities, offer mentoring programs, and clearly communicate that repetitive tasks are part of the job. This is seen in both generations as the older and younger people both have a leadership style in which they serve to help others and create a better life for others.

Generation z is different in leadership style than generation x because generation z tends to be more democratic and willing to get other people's opinions to help make a decision, however generation x is more coercive and believes that there is only one person that is needed to make the decision, instead of everyone's opinions. Also there leadership styles are different because generation z gives precise feedback and it also respects others inputs, where generation x does not.

The women right's issue of equal pay for equal work was addressed in the past as being something that was often fought for by civil rights activists, but it was not achieved fully. People believed women did not deserve as much money as men got because women were inferior and men more powerful and deserved the control. Women often were undermined and not given the same amount of money for doing the same work.

Males have, in the past, thought that women receiving less pay for equal work was right. They believed this to be normal and nothing wrong with it because of the ideas formed from the 18th century about women only being housewives. Over time this perception has changed because women now have fought for fairness and have come to mostly receive equal pay for equal work.

Women have addressed this issue by fighting for their rights and forming petitions, beginning in the early colonial times. Over time, women have begun to gain more power and opinions in society and have worked and shown that they deserve equal pay for equal work.
