In SJCU, we’re continuing our “Inequality of Wealth” unit. Our last class included a discussion about the homework assignment, “Too Many Inequities Persist in King County.” Students had many insightful observations, questions, and solutions for these inequities highlighted.
The class then divided into three groups and read the following articles around education, gender, and race related to pay. Our next class will include student presentations about their findings.
Pay and Education
Earnings and Unemployment Based on Education Attained (graph) (2013)
Pay and Gender
Pay Equity & Discrimination (Institute for Women’s Policy Research)
