Not that many jobs have been created the past three years under this horrific Obama economy. Yet for all the drivel about the so-called “War on Women,” isn’t it curious to discover that how poorly women have fared under the dreadful “leadership” of the failed president?
Since the global recession ended in June 2009, men have gained 80 percent of the 2.6 million net jobs created in the U.S., including 61 percent in the last year, according to a report.
According to the Los Angeles Times, men are getting a bigger share of jobs in areas, such as retail sales, federal data show.
Three years ago, women made up a majority of the payrolls in the retail trade, but since the sector hit a low in December 2009, men have gained more than 440,000 retail jobs while women have lost 49,500 positions.
Men now account for 51 percent of the 14.75 million retail jobs in the country.
Similarly, men’s payrolls has increased in financial services, such as banking and real estate, healthcare and education, and leisure and hospitality businesses, although women still outnumber men in each sector.
“During this recovery, men have looked for alternative careers and jobs in other sectors,” Adriana Kugler, the Labor Department’s chief economist, said.he gender gap has raised concerns about possible discrimination in hiring. If the trend persists, it could set back gains made by women in the workplace, experts said.
“It’s hard to know [whether] some employers place a priority on men going back to work,” Joan Entmacher, vice president for Family EconomicSecurity at the National Women’s Law Center, said.
Obviously we’re going to need federal intervention and a Congressional investigation into these clearly discriminatory practices under Obama.
