To The Contrary
Labor Day 1998 (#724)
This episode began with a segment about working couples and the new trend in relocating on behalf of the woman's job and not the man's. The panel discussed whether gender specific roles are changing and the low unemployment rate. The program continued with a segment about the lack of high-skilled workers and the request of the government to allow more immigrants into the country to fill those jobs, including the lack of female role models in the high tech industry; whether working conditions are up to par at the high tech companies; and whether women match the market. The program concluded with a discussion about pay equity for women. Linda Chavez-Thompson of the AFL-CIO joined Bonnie for a discussion about what women can do to ensure that they are being paid equally. Following the interview, the panel discussed her comments. Topics included why there is a gap in compensation related to gender; whether women are more anxious to join unions than men; and the need to teach women as girls not to settle for less than men.
