Women 's Equality in the Work Place
This has discussed gender wage differentials in US . It has also discussed various issues related to this and to have the authenticity of facts we have backed up statements with numerous experts and researchers . This has also presented the comparison of three countries including United States to get the clear picture of the issue Gender relations have an impact on national levels of economic performance .

shows that liberal democracies have focused largely upon an equality of rights or condition and thus the removal of legal and other restrictions on women - for example , giving women the franchise , equal opportunities in education , access to employment , and so on . In relation to the market , therefore , men and women should receive the same treatment . Governments in US have largely restricted themselves to this liberal version of the equality agenda
Gender relations impact on the economy as a whole , and thus on class structure . One of the ways that this impact can be seen is in strategies of flexibilisation and casualisation which increase class inequality Flexibility depends upon the availability of workers to take flexibilised jobs , and , in the US in particular , these are disproportionately women . Women , and the forms of employment typically taken by women , have traditionally been outside of the protections developed by the labor movement both within the workplace and by state-enforced regulations . The weakness of women 's position , which derives from such patriarchal practices , means that women are easier to employ as cheap labor . In a context where women are being increasingly employed and where there is also high unemployment this leads to a reduction in the terms and conditions and wages for all workers . Women are weaker because they have often been outside the protection of the male-dominated labor movement , which operated both in trade unions and the state (although this has significantly changed in recent years . The lack of representation of women 's interests in these organizations was an important factor in facilitating women 's disadvantage . If women had been effectively represented in the polity , in the state and major organizations , then it is less likely that such divisions would have occurred . Hence the connection between the gendered nature of the polity and the nature of the economy
The US has predominantly followed a deregulation route to economic development since 1979 . This it depends upon the availability of women as cheap , casualised , flexible workers . This results partly from the historical (rather than contemporary ) exclusion of women and part-timers from trade union and labor movement protection , both in terms of being organized in the workplace , and in the law . This is an issue of politics and organization . This policy of economic growth through deregulation and the use of high levels of unemployment to contain inflation create polarization and facilitate the development of an 'underclass ' of unemployed men
