Men Took 88% Percent Of All The New Jobs
3:31 pm, April 3rd | by Amy Tennery
Late last month we argued that men will continue to dominate the jobs recovery. And, yep, it’s pretty much working out that way. While male-dominated fields were hit hard in 2008, they’ve snapped up the majority of jobs in the post-recession era. And a new report today shows that this trend is far from slowing down. Super.
Brace yourself: Over the last (roughly) three years, 88 percent of the new non-farm jobs have gone to guys, according to a new report from Bloomberg today.
Of course, this should hardly come as a surprise, considering that, since June 2009, men have snapped up more jobs than women in 15 out of the 16 major business sectors in the country, according to a January report. State government was the only field where women made greater gains than men.
Men: They took err jerrrrbs!
