To be part of the study, a job had to be at least 65 to 70 percent dominated by one sex, Yavorsky said.
And it had to be an entry-level job where a general resume could be used.
Study from a University of North Carolina Charlotte researcher finds gender discrimination against both men and women when they apply for jobs typically filled by the other sex.
But there are differences at various stages of hiring process.
"The fact that I find no discrimination in middle-class entry-level male-dominated jobs suggests that women may experience fewer barriers making it into these jobs.
That's actually quite important; this is where we've made the most progress over 40 years or so." Yavorsky noted that men and women are largely considered equal in terms of cognitive ability now, with genders deemed comparable "in terms of rationality and being evenly smart." Yavorksy hopes employers will consider ways to reduce bias and discrimination in their hiring practices, she said.Yavorsky's findings are being published in online Friday in the peer-reviewed journal Social Forces, and the Council on Contemporary Families released an advance briefing paper today.What's often overlooked, Yavorsky said, is that gender discrimination in employment hurts men, too.But it's an entirely different story when women apply for high-paying middle-class jobs more typically held by men.In those instances, women "lag badly." Though both men and women faced gender-based discrimination, women take a somewhat bigger hit as more disadvantaged, Yavorsky told the Deseret News, because of what happens in those "elite, male-dominated jobs" where women don't get promoted at the same pace.The jobs dominated by males were manufacturing and janitorial at the working-class level and financial analysis and sales at the middle-class level.Men were called back for the male-dominated working-class jobs 44 percent more often than women were.This is not an indication of a security issue such as a virus or attack.It could be something as simple as a run away script or learning how to better use E-utilities, for more efficient work such that your work does not impact the ability of other researchers to also use our site.This is in spite of the fact that the Equal Employment Opportunity Act in the early 1970s banned gender-based job discrimination, and the Supreme Court shortly after ruled that newspapers couldn't sort "help wanted" postings into his and hers categories.Yavorsky's study looked at jobs statistically associated with females, including middle-class jobs in human resources and administrative support as well as working-class jobs involving housekeeping and customer service.
