Janiyah, What About the Pay Gap

The pay gap can defined as a difference in earnings between men and woman. This gap can be caused by a number of factors, including race, ethnicity, education and more. For this project, I researched this topic and created a poem and a collage that reflects what I learned. In my process of completing my project I choose to interview school officials that work in the main office of my high school. I asked them to share with me anything they felt was important to include about their experiences, as it relates to the pay gap issue.
