Masculinity includes when men are present, provide and protect in a male and female relationship. Due to basic science, women have always had the responsibility of bearing children and childbirth. As a result of this fact of life, in times of childbearing or birth, men tend to have the responsibility of taking care of the family financially. Men are known to provide for their significant other during times of pregnancy in an ideal relationship, while over the course of history, women have had children in order to sustain the world’s population. Because women have the responsibility of childbirth, they generally have been less prominent in dominant roles and less likely to have on average higher incomes in the workplace than males. Overtime, men have generally been trained to take care of themselves and dependents financially more often than females due to women childbearing. The wage gap exists between men and women in the workforce as a result of the childbearing and the roles and responsibilities of males and females correspondingly. Providing more opportunities to women for business success and higher incomes is one solution for the natural responsibility given to women to make families. The wage gap could be closed within individual businesses if employers would offer men and women in the same position the same income regardless of the sex. As a result, the burden of childbearing would be compensated for by an equal opportunity workforce. Training and communication could be used to ensure business best practices.
