FYSP 163 - She Works Hard for the Money: Women, Work and the Persistence of Inequality

4 SS, QPh, WR
First Semester.  In the U.S., women earn less, on average, than men and are more likely to be part-time employees. Gender-based discrepancies impact the social positions of women and men in society.  Further, racial/ethnic discrepancies within and between gender categories of labor persist as well.  Students will learn about the U.S. labor market, the effects of globalization, theories that explain stratification and the causes and consequences of labor market inequalities.  Topics will include occupational segregation, comparable worth, gender-based job queuing, and the association between paid and unpaid labor.
