It’s a big, expensive, global mystery. Why do women still make less money—a lot less—than men? In the US, the average woman makes 80 cents to every dollar a man makes.

    Live From London: Equal Pay for Equal Play

    Live From London: Equal Pay for Equal Play

    The Pay Check is back with a bonus episode on gender equality in women’s soccer. A few months ago, the US women’s soccer team filed a pay discrimination lawsuit alleging that they do not get equal pay for equal work. The US women’s team is far more successful, by many metrics, than the men’s team, but they make half as much. Globally, the story is much more complicated. Rebecca Greenfield talks with Eben Novy Williams about the fight for equality in the US and then heads to Bloomberg’s UK Equality Summit for our first ever live taping to talk with English soccer legend Kelly Smith, head of the Women’s Super League Kelly Simmons and Lenah Ueltzen-Gabell about the fight for equal treatment in the UK.

    Help Wanted

    Help Wanted

    During World War II, the influx of women workers into the workforce solved one problem—the labor shortage—while creating another: Who would watch the kids? To address it, the U.S. government created high-quality, publicly-funded childcare centers for working moms. In this season’s final episode of The Pay Check, we explore the long term effects of this brief government experiment. We ask what it would take, short of a war, to generate a similar groundswell of public support for mothers in the workforce. And we question the assumption that mothers alone are responsible for creating the infrastructure that enables them to work.

    The No-Child Policy

    The No-Child Policy

    For the last few weeks, we’ve been talking about how having kids makes it hard for women to work for pay. But there’s a flip side to that: Because it’s so hard for women to work for pay when they have kids, more and more just aren’t having them. This is a problem all over the developed world, and since population growth is a big part of economic growth, these countries are desperately trying to boost fertility rates. China in particular is in deep trouble: after almost 40 years of the One-Child Policy, the population could start shrinking within a few years. We head to China to see how the country is attempting to get women to have kids — and why it’s not working.
