Not the Way to Solve the Pay Gap

Tom Peters, who has a brilliant blog and newswire amongh his other worthwhile endeavors has a recent post, Rightside Up?, that notes a telling statistic in last week’s Boston Globe:

In the last year:

Men are down 1,069,000 jobs.

Women are up 12,000 jobs.

The main reason, a loss of manufacturing jobs (primarily male) and a growth in service, particularly health care (primarily female).

Of course the pay gap problem will only satisfactorily be resolved when the number of men and women employed are both on the rise.
