    My name is Guadalupe Quintero and I am a 9th grade student at Life Academy. I want to thank you for your comment. I would like to answer your question.

    Dear Business Owners:

    Did you know that in most cases, women get paid less than men? For example, for every dollar that a man gets paid, women get paid 79 cents. But, depending on race as well, women get paid

    • Hello everyone.

      My name is Javier Hernandez and I am a student at Fremont High School here in Oakland. I just read your project blog post and I have some feedback.

      One thing I liked about what you wrote was that you were showing the differences between the salaries of men and women even if they have the same job. Another thing I liked about your post is that you showed that women get payed even less depending on their race, you showed me something new today.

      Something I have a question about is why do you think that women get paid less than men do?

      Thank you for sharing your project!

      • Dear Javier,
        My name is Guadalupe Quintero and I am a 9th grade student at Life Academy. I want to thank you for your comment. I would like to answer your question. I think that women get paid less because men believe that women are weak and that they can’t do the same job as they do, so that is where this ideology starts and it doesn’t only affects women, but affects everyone. Now I have a question for you. Do you believe women should get paid less than men?
        I would like to see what you think to this question.
        Thank you for writing to me,
        Guadalupe Quintero

    • Dear Liliana Thank you for your advice I’ll make sure me and my group do some research about American with Disabilities.Hopefully we could use it in other presentations.

      My name is Alexus and I am a student at Fremont High School here in Oakland. I just read your project blog post and I have some feedback.
      One thing I liked about what you wrote was you explain this topic about how people get oppress because of their gender and are not treated equal
      Something I have a question about is What do you think you can do to change this big matter today?

      Thank you for sharing your project!

      • Dear Alexus,
        Thank you for your feedback. To answer your question, I believe that we won’t make the BIGGEST change, which is stopping this issue, but we can for sure spread more awareness. As the saying goes, there is “Strength in Numbers.” The more awareness we can spread in the middle and high schools, the more information the students will have to share, and the more this issue can be seen in all of it’s sexist ways. Rather than that, I don’t think we can, with our current plan, create more of a bigger change. But, if we were to plan something bigger, there can be a bigger movement made OUTSIDE of school. Hope this answers your question, and thanks again for your feedback.

    • Hello everyone.

      My name is Jane and I am a student at Fremont High School here in Oakland. I just read your project blog post and I have some feedback.
      One thing I liked about what you wrote was that you guys put a lot of facts and quotes and you also included what other people said about the subject. I liked how you guys were or are so passionate about what your blog is about.

      Something I have a question about is what will you do to raise more awareness to equal pay?

      Thank you for sharing your project!

    • Dear Katerine,
      Thank you for your reply, and thank you for your feedback. All of these comments give us more thought about why we are doing this, and why this topic is more significant than what it seems. To answer your question, we are inspired by this topic because, as I stated earlier, it isn’t that well known. Some people do know about this issue, but for those who don’t, which can be the middle schoolers, we can spread awareness. The more people that know of this issue, the more people can be supportive and the more this movement can be successful. I am not sure about my teammates, but that is one of the main reasons as to why I, personally, want to spread awareness on this issue. If you so wish, you can ask my teammates about their inspirations to see all of our reasons. Once again, thank you for all of your feedback!

    • Dear Vicky,
      Equal pay effects others than just women especially if she is the one bring home money. If she is a mother and the father can´t work because of a disability or injury only the women can feed her child and help the father. This is in society but people don´t realise because of certain information seen on t.v like a women next to a stove in a commercial and a men next to a car. My group and I presented to middle schoolers to spread awareness. We used slide shows to have better visual presentations so others can have a better understanding.
      Thanks,
      Nathan

    • This is an issue that I too am passionate about, it was more personalized because all of you choose to include how you would personally make a change.

    • Thank you for sharing.

    • Dear Group People,

      I respect what you trying to accomplish but I have to say that it’s all for nothing.
      I know you’re trying to give women equal pay, but news flash It already is.
      You probably found about how on average men make more than women, but that is only because when given the choice women won’t work overtime and would stay home to take care of their child.
      Please get your facts straight

      Sincerely,

      The commentor

      ps. didn’t wanna seem harsh just a critique comment, also

      There’s more links to more information but I don’t feel like sharing it.

    • Hello everyone.

      My name is Stephanie and I am a student at Oakland Unity High School. To start with, I would like to say that all of you did a really good job with this subject. You really did your research, to the point that you talked about the problem from the past and connected it to the present. I also like how you all would want to make a change and how you have a layout of how you will get this information spread out for others to learn. A question that I have is, what 5 middle schools do you have in mind to present at?

      Thank you,

      Stephanie

    • One thing I liked about your writing s how clear you state you reasons and examples. I agree with you, I don’t think one person should not be paid less than the other because of the gender.

    • Hi Guadelupe, Anthony and Nathan,

      I really enjoyed reading your posting on the inequality in pay. I liked the fact that you had done extensive research complete with facts and statistics. If only the businesses would listen but as you write, “The levels of oppression are ideological and institutional because it is an idea that men should be paid more than women and the government is fine with this idea”.
      The US is a capitalist country so the government keeps a hands-off approach to business operations. However, they do get involved when they want to like in cases of strikes or bailouts but they are quite ineffective in areas of inequality and discrimination. There are laws in place but the violations like pay inequality benefits those in power so they are not quick to change the situation.

      Keep researching and keep writing; let your voices be heard. Change will come – One Day!

      Thank you for your contribution.
