Computer chips and paper clips : technology and women's employment by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

41 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 4,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, prepared by the Committee's Panel on Technology and Women's Employment, identifies and analyzes the effects of technological change on the quantity and quality of women's paid employment. Chapter 1 defines technological change, describes changes in information technologies, discusses the measurement and characteristics of technological change, and explores the economic and social context of technological change and possible employment effects. It describes women's employment situations and explains why differential effects are expected for women workers. Chapter 2 discusses selected examples of technological change in communications and information processing and considers especially its effects on women's employment levels and on the content and quality of work. Chapter 3 analyzes the current and future effects of technological change on the levels of employment and the structure of occupations and considers changes in worker supply and demand. It reviews Bureau of Labor Statistics projections, presents estimates of the most plausible worst case, and examines recent and projected shifts in the demand for various occupations. Chapter 4 analyzes the current and likely future effects of technological change on employment quality and explores the roles of managers and workers in implementing new technologies and improving employment quality. Chapter 5 offers recommendations to facilitate the mutual adaptation of technology and employment. The monograph contains a 258-item list of references and concludes with biographical sketches of dance members and staff and an index. (YLB)
Women's work, men's work : sex segregation on the job by Barbara F Reskin( )

28 editions published between 1900 and 1988 in English and held by 2,728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The literature on sex segregation in the workplace was reviewed to determine how it could be used in formulating policy in the area of sex fairness in the American labor market. The committee found that although women's occupational options have increased dramatically in the past decade, sex segregation is still widespread. Among those factors that appeared responsible for sex segregation in the workplace were the following: cultural beliefs; barriers to employment such as discrimination, socialization, and unequal education and training opportunities; family responsibilities; and the opportunity structure. Analysis of the existing laws and programs geared toward intervening in the workplace, in job training, and in education revealed that what is needed is not new legislation but rather more committed leadership, stricter enforcement, and enhancement of voluntary compliance with existing laws. In addition, enforcement agencies must develop much stronger programs of policy-relevant research on such issues as the sources of change in occupations in which the most dramatic improvements in sex-fair opportunities have occurred and the relative effectiveness of measures to improve enforcement and voluntary compliance. (This report includes 15 tables and the table of contents from a comparison report, "Sex Segregation in the Workplace.") (Mn)

Women, work, and wages : equal pay for jobs of equal value by Assembly of Behavioral and Social Sciences (U.S.)( )

21 editions published between 1981 and 1986 in English and held by 2,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to determine whether methods of job analysis and classification currently used are biased by traditional sex stereotypes or other factors, a committee assessed formal systems of job evaluation and other methods currently employed in the private and public sectors for establishing the comparability of jobs and their levels of compensation. A review of sociological and economic literature shows that some differences in the characteristics of workers and in jobs do form a legitimate basis for wage differentials. Nevertheless, there exists a pervasiveness of occupational and job segregation by sex. Given the current operation of the labor market and the existence of a variety of factors that permit the persistence of earning differentials between men and women (E.G., labor market segmentation, job segregation, and employment practices), it would seem that intentional and unintentional discriminatory elements enter into the determination of wages and are not likely to disappear. Use of a job evaluation system is one possible remedy to this situation. While the subjectivity of job evaluation makes job evaluations less than perfect vehicles for resolving pay disputes, they can serve to identify potential wage discrimination. (Mn)

Increasing working mothers' earnings by Roberta M Spalter-Roth( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents a study that views working mothers as primary or co-equal earners, who need wages sufficient to support their families. The study hypothesized that the complex socioeconomic trends of the last two decades have had more of an impact on working mothers' wages than have their specific family relations. The study employed a variety of descriptive and multivariate research techniques to test this hypothesis and investigated the impact of job, human capital, and family characteristics on the hourly wages of working mothers as they vary by race and ethnicity, marital status, and educational levels. After reviewing the demographic, family, human capital, and job characteristics, the study examined the significant predictors of working mothers' wages. The principal finding indicated that family related characteristics were not significant predictors of the wages of working mothers. Rather, the best indicators of a woman's hourly wage rate were her human capital and job characteristics. Based on these findings, the study then estimated the impact of a series of policy strategies that can increase working mothers' earnings. The most effective policy strategies were found to be those that increase a woman's return to work experience to a white male level, her education, and her ability to stay in the workforce. A three pronged strategy that maximizes work experience, increases returns to experience, and increases working mothers' share of full time jobs, was the most effective policy of all those studied, positively impacting the wages of all groups of working mothers.
