FT.com / US & Canada - Men bear the brunt of US jobs lost
yah...right... because men have thre high-paying jobs that companies want to cut so they can keep less highly paid women.
real sexism, babe.
Missed that question mark, eh?
That's what I was thinking. Too bad they arent as willing to lay off the men who are in the seriously high paying executive positions.
the housing, construction, banking, wall street, insurance, thrift, auto...etc businesses were weighted towards employing more men so more men are being downsized as these businesses shrink or fall....imo!
From what my wife and I have seen, she has a high mid-level position in a large software company, white collar corporate layoffs have been gender-neutral.
It's simple mathematics ... fewer women in the work force so of course more men will lose their jobs.
You win my take!
From the article,
Men didn't have anywhere near 80% of jobs.
