History: Women About to Become Majority of Workers in U.S.

With the current economy, both men and women have been losing jobs. However, men have been losing more jobs then women. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that since December 2007 when the recession started through June, men have lost roughly 4.75 million jobs compred to 1.66 million for women. Now, there are several factors that play into the shifting workforce in the U.S. For one, there's been some growth in women getting jobs in healthcare and in government. It may also be that women generally are cheaper than men (making only 77% of what men make for the same job). Saying all this, if the current trend continues, for the first time in history, women will outnumber men in the workforce by October or Novermber. We'll keep you posted if/when this happens.
