Workforce, Wage Gap, and Unions

Women are best served by a dynamic economy that creates a wide-variety of job opportunities. IWF analysts highlight how women's choices, rather than systematic discrimination, drive difference between men and women's roles in the economy. IWF also considers how unions can impede progress, by making companies less competitive, creating one-size-fits-all compensation regimes, and by increasing government's control of our economy.
