"Low paid for job. Why do we acquiesce to it?" (by Ol'ga Issoupova) looks into phenomenon of labor
remuneration when earnings do not exceed minimal living standard, as well as for pay subjectively seen
as insufficient and unjust. It is argued that individuals agree to conditions offered mainly due to the force
of circumstances as the situation in Russian labor market features both employers arbitrariness and
lacking employees' protection. Gendered differences of considerable scale have been found out reflected
in the fact of lower remuneration. Women comply in these cases more often then men. Reason is seen in
women's greater responsibility towards the family, lower self-reliance, as well as lower evaluation for
own chances to find alternative job.
