Gender

In the last 30 years, the key structural change to the American labor force has been the increased participation of women. During this time, there have been dramatic decreases in gender wage gaps and women have increased their share of quality jobs. Because of declines for men in these areas, the performance of women in the labor market has been essential for many families to maintain living standards from a generation ago. Despite gains, data show there is still plenty of room for improvement.
