On this week's Flash Talks Cash Andrew Newman joins JoAnn Flash Fleming via the phone to talk about the wage gap. Ever since women entered the workforce in the United States, they have been earning lower wages than men for the same work- and it continues to happen to this day! Join us to hear JoAnn recount some of the history of wage disparity between genders, including the entrance of women in the workforce during World War II and the Equal Pay Act of 1963. Hear about how single mothers face even more adversity in the workplace, and how the price of housework stacks up. This episode has been brought to you by Fairway Market.
"In back in the 50s and up to the early 60s the disparity was about 60 cents to a dollar. A woman made 60 cents to every dollar a man made, and we're talking the same work." -- JoAnn "Flash" Fleming on Flash Talks Cash
