    It could be a job touring visitors around a local historical site or national park, or a job planning, organizing or escorting tours. Census Bureau, and the annual average of weekly median earnings in February by the U. Stratifying by pure statistics like this can lead to some interesting results, but it's only made worse by cherrypicking demographics for comparison. The Family Medical Leave Act is supposed to ensure that a mom has the right to take an unpaid leave of absence. These economists argue that women have chosen lower-paying fields with flexible schedules to give themselves more time to care for their families. Here's an archive of the user page for latinxtaco.

    That's just a silly argument. Unfortunately our labor market has both race-based and gender-based wage and employment discrimination. If that's your intention to reach a desired conclusion through your selective emphasis then that's fine, but comparing white men with women of color ignores so many potentially alternate variables that it's effectively meaningless. The participation rate among these workers rose from

    Among household domestics--a female-dominated field that includes cooks, baby-sitters, housekeepers, cleaning people and the like--men out-earned women in every category but child care. Actually, the GAO found that workers at the largest firms were only slightly more likely to participate compared to workers at the smallest firms. This statistic takes into account the impact of employers that do not sponsor a plan on overall retirement plan participation rates. Women of color fare much worse. Of course not — but surveys and coverage of those surveys routinely purport to glean a sense of retirement readiness from those kind of numbers.

Retailers hire for many different positionsincluding cashiers, customer service, stocking shelves, merchandising, ordering, baking, candy making, gift wrapping and more. Of course I am not intimately familiar with the millions of data points on women's and men's wages available from the federal government.

In firms with 25 to 99 employees, retirement plan participation rose from Who Bears the Investment Risk? Log in to post comments You might want to check out….

For example in weekly earnings forwhite women earned Uneven Money Here is the average yearly pay for a few of the nearly occupations listed by the Census Bureau and analyzed by The Times.

It is also worth remembering that activists in that struggle were well aware that achieving a shorter work week was critical to securing for workers the time and energy needed to build a powerful working class movement for social transformation.

On the contrary, if the wage gap exists purely due to employer-designed preferences, is there any data that shows this point explicitly? Despite the reality that they are comprised of savings totals for workers with a wide range of age, tenure, and savings rates — totals that are simply added together, and then divided by the number of workers in the sample.

Fontenot, Jessica L. Among household domestics--a female-dominated field that includes cooks, baby-sitters, housekeepers, cleaning people and the like--men out-earned women in every category but child care. I have a phd in economics from Yale University and have been studying women in the labor market since I started graduated school quite a few decades ago.

Participation in retirement plans among workers in firms with or more employees also rose between andincreasing from Efforts are being made nationally as well and hopefully in the next years we will see much greater progress in closing the wage gap than we have seen in the past years.

They are not being twisted. A Times computer analysis of newly released U. Tax preparation companies hire thousands of workers to help prepare and file taxes. Nevertheless, rates of retirement plan sponsorship and participation in small firms continue to lag behind the rates achieved in larger firms.

In addition to counselors, camps hire activity coordinators, nurses, maintenance, food service, and administrative staff. At the same time, it does demonstrate that there is plenty of room for improvement in the United States. But most analysts say blatant discrimination by employers and customers--along with subtle societal pressure on women to go into lower-paying jobs--also play major roles in holding down the incomes of women.

The OECD defines average annual hours worked per employed person as: the total number of hours actually worked per year divided by the average number of people in employment per year. That, coupled with the seemingly relentless headlines about employers being sued by their participants never mind that those plans tend to be much, much larger, and different than your typical small business retirement planand you can hardly blame an already hesitant employer for putting off the potential risks associated with embracing the responsibility of an ERISA fiduciary.

But family issues do make a difference and one way to deal with those is more equitable sharing between men and women AND government policies that support caregiving through paid family leave and subsidized even free child care--countries that have all those supports, including paid family leave for men, have much smaller wage gaps than we do in the US.This chapter first presents the trends in inequality between men and women in terms of employment and earnings before discussing the earnings dispersion among male workers and among female workers.
