Gender Inequality

The video talks about the huge gender inequality in Mexico and how despite the increasing presence of women in the Mexican work force there is still a big gap especially when it comes to income. I choose this video because the report talks about women entering the taxi driver labor force. We see many studies or research and articles on the topic of gender inequality in the workforce focus on government positions or careers requiring education, but not much emphasis is placed on the gender inequality in the “blue collar” labor force. Globalization has done a lot for women’s role in government. When a government is under the world’s eyes it places more value and emphasis on things like gender equality within the government because it has to gain credibility from world leader who value gender equality. And although this is great, we tend to forget about or sectors of the labor force that need to catch up, but are not held to the same standards because they are not in the global eye.
