Abstract: It’s 2014 and with all the advancement that we’ve made since our most revolutionary eras, women still earn 77 cents for every dollar men earn. Despite the alarming difference (23 cents!), for many women this wage gap goes unnoticed. Furthermore, even for those who recognize the severity of the gap, its existence is difficult to comprehend because its history is disjointed. Specifically, the wage gap is the result of a variety of forms of sex discrimination in the workplace, including discrimination in hiring, promotion and pay, sexual harassment, occupational segregation, and bias against mothers. Thus, for working women it is important to not only understand how to negotiate for wages, but also to recognize why the wage gap exists, as a more comprehensive knowledge of gender discrimination strengthens arguments against it.
As a trained professional who facilitates workshops on wage negotiations for working women I emphasize the importance of breaking down cultural and social barriers that prevent women from advocating for their worth. In these workshops we focus on helping women reconceptualize social and cultural narratives of employment, emphasizing that they are their own best advocates. As such, the current paper speaks to the personal level shifts that are needed to enable individual women to address the wage gap effectively. Specifically, while still accounting for structural inequalities and discrimination, the current paper hopes to argue for the individual reframing of both social/cultural narratives of work and employment, and personal narratives of self-worth and skill.

"Wage Stagnation and the Rise of Merchant Capitalism: How Buyer-Supplier Relations Affect U.S. Workers’ Wages, 1978-2014" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Palais des Congrès de Montréal, Montreal, Canada, Aug 12, 2017 Online <PDF>. 2019-09-16 <>

Abstract: This paper examines the link between stagnant wages and the increasingly concentrated power of large corporate buyers. With the rise of big-box retailers and other large intermediary purchasers, suppliers in industries like manufacturing and transportation, former bastions of middle-income employment, face pressure from buyers to reduce wages. Economic sociology predicts that buyer power can either decrease suppliers’ wages by destroying rents or increase wages by raising productivity through buyer-supplier collaboration. Panel analysis of data on publicly traded suppliers shows that supplier reliance on large buyers decreases suppliers’ wages. Instrumental variables analysis of mergers among buyers shows that these wage decreases result from increased buyer power. Increasing reliance on key buyers accounts for 10% to 15% of the decline in wage growth since 1978. These results show that the social structure of production markets can restrain wage growth.

Abstract: Public policy initiatives in the 1950s and 1960s including Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity law have helped to mitigate explicit
discrimination in pay, and the expansion of higher education and training programs have advanced the employment fortunes of many women. By the early
1980s some scholars proclaimed near equity in pay between black and white women, particularly among young, highly skilled women. More recent policy
initiatives and labor market conditions have been arguably less progressive for black women's employment and earnings and through the 1980s and 1990s the
racial wage gap between black and white women widened considerably. This paper documents the racial wage gap among women in the U.S and examines the
extent to which demographic characteristics and institutional conditions affect selection into the labor force of black and white women. The paper
considers how the composition of the labor force affects estimates of the race gap in wages within the U.S. and discusses the persistence of racial
inequality in the labor market.
