Effect to single moms –traditionally (not anymore), women stay at home to care for the kids. Elena, from Cornerstone Design reiterated that most women now hire home cleaners and pay them on a scheduled basis than staying at home when you can also go out and earn a living. Now single moms get the work they always wanted, after all they didn’t spend their teens and early 20’s going to school just to be housed for the kids and other home chores. Women has ambitions too.

When women are paid less than that of men counterparts –enduring male-dominated workplace as a woman sometimes adds to stress from work. There shouldn’t be a reason to be paid lesser than that of them. In the office where men and women work, there should be equality as to salary, after all, there is no ‘macho’ tasks in the office that women can’t do. If John can carry his chair from the dining to his office cubicle, then Mary can do that to.
