Abstract

This article discusses the complexity of gender pay within the occupations of engineering and caring. Applying an intersectional framework, we examine the role the gender pay gap plays in the perceived wellbeing of women engineers and care workers. The salient identities (micro level) for the two groups were identified through analysis of the professional context (meso) and the socio-political environment (macro). The two participant groups were situated in different class positions. The intersections of identities revealed unexpected advantages and disadvantages for women seeking fair and decent pay, with various implications for perceived wellbeing.
