This text is designed to acquaint students with research findings concerning women, men, and work, both in the labor market and in the household. It is intended primarily for courses concerned with the economic status of women. Topics include the narrowing gender pay gap, the declining employment prospects of less-educated men, wage stagnation, corporate restructuring, and changing family structures. The authors assume a knowledge of introductory economics but not of advanced theory. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
