Labor Market Segmentation and its Implications : Inequality, Deprivation, and Entitlement Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Women and Business series

Description

Occupational sex segregation is one of the most universal and salient characteristics of labor markets.

It indicates the different probabilities of members of both genders to take up particular occupations, and traditionally places women at a great disadvantage.

This book, first published in 1992, focuses on a comparative analysis of sex-segregated occupational categories and attempts to systematically examine their implications.

Since very little is known about Israeli working women, and given the cultural differences between Israel and other, more studied industrialised nations, this book focuses on the Israeli labor market.

Through the utilization of several theoretical approaches, combining economic, sociological, and social-psychological perspectives, the book analyses empirical findings concerning labor market perceptions, attitudes and behaviors.
