A social issue is a problem that affects individuals and/or groups within society, and there are almost always opposing viewpoints. Variations in ethical and moral perspectives contribute to disagreements about social issues. This week’s summative assessment focuses on CSLO 2: Compare ethical and moral perspectives of decision-making in the context of social issues.
The scenario provided this week is a continuation of the scenario presented in Week 2. You might find it helpful to review your Week 2 submission and faculty feedback before completing this assignment.

European Approaches to the Gender Pay Gap
The policies of other nations can offer some insight into how to address pay inequality. Iceland, for example, has consistently been at the top of the world rankings for workplace gender equality in the World Economic Forum survey. A new Icelandic law went into effect on January 1, 2018, that makes it illegal to pay men more than women, gauged not by specific job category, but rather in all jobs collectively at any employer with twenty-five or more employees, a concept known as an aggregate salary data approach. The burden of proof is on employers to show that men and women are paid equally or they face a fine. The ultimate goal is to eliminate all pay inequities in Iceland by the year 2022. The United Kingdom has taken a first step toward addressing this issue by mandating pay transparency, which requires employers with 250 workers or more to publish details on the gaps in average pay between their male and female employees.
Policies not directly linked to salary can help as well. German children have a legal right to a place in kindergarten from the age of three years, which has allowed one-third of mothers who could not otherwise afford nursery school or kindergarten to join the workforce. In the United Kingdom, the government offers up to thirty hours weekly of free care for three- and four-year-old children, to help mothers get back in the workforce. Laws such as these allow women, who are often the primary caregivers in a household, to experience fewer interruptions in their careers, a factor often blamed for the wage gap in the United States.
The World Economic Forum reports that about 65 percent of all Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries have introduced new policies on pay equality, including requiring many employers to publish calculations every year showing the gender pay gap. Steps such as the collection and reporting of aggregate salary data, or some form of early education or subsidized childcare, are positive steps toward eventually achieving the goal of wage equality.
Revised from Byars and Stanberry (2018) pg. 175.
Which of these policies do you think would be the most likely to be implemented in the United States and why?
How would each of the normative theories of ethical behavior (utilitarianism, deontology, virtue, and justice ethics) view this issue and these proposed solutions?
You recently became CEO of a company with 400 employees where men made 25% more than women on average across all employees. What actions would you take to reduce this gap to under 10% within two years? Would it be realistic to reduce the gap to 0? Why or why not?
Note:
Remember in this discussion forum you should respond with substantial detail to this topic early in week 1 of the module. This will be your “initial post.” For your initial post, also bring in information from at least one background source or your own research to help inform your classmates. Cite the source.
Then by week 2 of the module, you are to respond to the posts of at least two of your classmates. Your responses should have depth of critical thought and not simply agree or disagree. For each response, also bring in information from at least one background source or your own research to help inform your classmates. Cite the source.
Assignment Expectations
Each post should be about 250-300 words.
Discussion posts will be assessed according to the following criteria on the discussion rubric:
Quality of initial posting (first discussion only): Initial posting reveals a clear understanding of all aspects of the treated discussion question; uses factual and relevant information; and demonstrates full development of concepts.
Quality of Responses to Classmates: Responds to the required number of students and to the professor, if appropriate. Demonstrates analysis of others’ posts; extends meaningful discussions by building on previous peer posts; and offers alternative perspectives.
Reference to supporting readings/information literacy: Refers to and properly cites either course and/or outside readings in posts, as required.
Critical thinking: Demonstrates mastery conceptualizing the problem; viewpoints and assumptions of experts are analyzed, synthesized, and evaluated; and conclusions are logically presented with appropriate rationale.
Timeliness: Initial post occurs in a timely manner (1-3 days into module) allowing ample time for classmates to respond and engage.

To this point in the class we have focused on the study of ethics from ancient t

To this point in the class we have focused on the study of ethics from ancient times through the Enlightenment period, and in upcoming lessons we will continue with this historical approach into modern times. This week, however, you will begin working on a multistep assignment that will focus on a contemporary ethical issue, and you will apply ideas from throughout the course to reach an ethical stance on it. This assignment will consist of four main pieces.
Topic Selection: See directions below (Week 3)
Academic Research: (Week 4)
Introduction, Background, and Ethical Challenges: (Week 5)
Solutions and Conclusion: (Week 6)
Presentation: (Week 7)
For more details, consult the Ethics and Contemporary Issues Project Overview.
As a reminder, here are the possible topics for your project.
Changing the names of schools or taking down statues named after controversial historical figures
Using race or ethnicity as a factor in hiring decisions or college admissions
“Canceling” people or organizations who have made controversial or insensitive remarks
Encouraging businesses to become more politically active
Allowing people who have undergone gender reassignment to participate in competitive sports
Providing people with disabilities reasonable accommodations in the workplace
Teaching critical race theory or the 1619 Project in schools
Compelling private businesses to serve customers they do not wish to
Debating the merits of various immigration policies, such as open borders, the building of walls, and so on
Doing away with cash bail for many criminal offenses
Eliminating harassment in the workplace
Reallocating money from the police to other city agencies and services
Reforming or eliminating the Electoral College
Implementing a wealth tax on millionaires and billionaires who pay little or no income tax
Forgiving student loans or making college tuition free
Giving everyone a universal basic income
Requiring voters to provide identification
This week you will begin by choosing your topic. You will complete this assignment by answering the following questions in complete sentences and submitting them in a Word document.
What is your topic?
Why did you choose it?
What ethical dilemmas does your topic raise?
Based on what you have learned about ethics so far, how do you imagine some of the famous ethicists of the past, such as Aristotle, Aquinas, or Locke, would have to say about your topic?
Finally, find one good contemporary source related to your topic choice. Ideally, this will be a scholarly source from a journal, but it may also be a good-quality source from a contemporary periodical publication as well. Provide the full reference for this source in APA style, followed by a quick summary of a few sentences written in your own words.
