Employment, Higher Education, and Gender

Increasingly income levels and associated quality of life indicators are tied to educational attainment. Those with the most education are the most likely to be employed and to earn the highest incomes. Others with less education are the least likely to be employed, face higher unemployment rates and lower wages. These relationships apply to young and old, to men and women, to those of every race and ethnicity. The justice of these relationships is unclear but these relationships in U.S. society are pervasive and persistent. This issue of the PEO Newsletter explores trends in the changes in the types of industries, employment levels, education, and income differences by gender. The essay observes that the relationship between education and relative income levels has increased with the advent of the so called ďhuman capital economy.Ē We also observe that while women continue to earn lower wages then men for every level of educational attainment that the decline of higher paying jobs in traditionally male industries that did not require postsecondary education has led to particularly high levels of difficulty for less educated males.
