Gender and Jobs

Nicholas Eberstadt is an economist at the American Enterprise Institute. He researched poverty, economic development, and demographics. He says, “…we are, in reality, living through an extended period of extraordinary, Great depression-scale underutilization of male manpower, and this severe “work deficit” for men has gradually worsened over time.” He noticed that jobs were not being taken advantage of. In today’s society, unemployment has lowered which shows that many people are utilizing these job opportunities. But the question arises that are the recent college graduates going to have a hard time locating a job? If a job position comes down to a man and a woman who would be preferred? Would there be any discrimination against one of the candidates based upon their race, gender or ethnicity? These are questions that we must ask to understand the overall expectations people have of us and what we actually bring to the table.
