Gender Segregation in Training Programs and the Wage Gap (Issue Brief)
This issue brief demonstrates how women continue to be underrepresented in skilled-trade jobs and the barriers that women face in accessing these jobs through U.S. Department of Labor programs, which perpetuates the gender wage gap in America. The authors also offer suggestions that might facilitate greater opportunity for women to be exposed to, train for, and enter jobs in these fields. The brief uses data from a sample of Registered Apprenticeship participants, Trade Adjustment Assistance participants, and Job Corps participants.
