Wage inequality due to access to technology
The general problem is that wage inequality remains high between high wage and low-income earners. The purpose of this qualitative case study was to explore the role of local government agencies or officials in implementing technology-based policies and programs to minimize wage inequality. The study was exploratory in nature and utilized qualitative methodology to collect data from interviews with government employees who hold different levels of employment, such as new hires up to workers representing management. However, all participants work in the labor sector. Specifically, the interviewees have been part of the policy-making committees on some level. The researcher gained subjects through past peer relationships by utilizing the snowball effect. Moreover, this researcher has conducted semi-structured interviews to further the data by using five participants. After organizing the data, the researcher performed Yin’s (2013) five-phased method for analyzing a case study.
