More Women than Men in the Workforce

Filed under: General HR Buzz — Tags: , 1:52 pm

For the first time ever women will outnumber men in the workplace.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics June numbers, women held 49.83% of U.S. jobs.

At this rate women will outnumber men in October or November.  They’re also gaining jobs in the sectors that are growing such as healthcare, education, and government. On average women still work more part-time jobs.  Additionally, they’re still paid 77% of what men make.

The number of men should increase though as the economy comes out of the recession and more construction and manufacturing jobs become available. In any event, times have definitely changed.
