The moment that the processes of wage inequality and segregation changed in history, is the same time when the two were not eliminated. It is at this point that Acker (2006) argues United States continued to be dominated by the White men who hired only a gender and race segregated labor force. A workforce that Acker (2006) believes has many issues of wage inequality. Social factors such as the family, polity, religion and the economy in United States contribute to the high economic gap that exists between the black women and other women from other races. The total value of wealth that minority families own cannot be equated to that of the majority. High rates of poverty among black families may serve as a problem when it comes to families maintaining a safety net against income fluctuations. Women from such families are less likely to inherit any income from their families or get the financial support from their parents to support their educational needs or get jobs that are well-paying. Hence, the economic gap increases between them and the other women of other races who have the financial support of their wealthy parents. Even though Black women in the U.S are emerging as the most educated as noted by Henderson (2014), they still remain vulnerable and poor. The reasons for this include high unemployment rates, poor government policies, income inequality in organizations and cultural factors which require some to raise children and take care of husbands and forget about their careers.
