When women are pushed into occupations like nursing, their wages fall because the supply increases. This short video is intended for my presentation to Business and Professional Women on April 14, 2010.
Do you think women are treated differently in school than men. I've noticed that when teachers praise girls for work, the comment on how neat the work is or how organized it is. When men are praised, the teacher often comments about the quality of the work. This simple treatment that teachers unknowingly do, can result in occupational crowding especially in office jobs.
Being neat and organized are productive characteristics of high producing workers. I think teachers should never include neatness as a standard of excellence. What do you think?
I hope this blog will be an iPod app in the next two weeks. Wish me luck.
