In light of the Pay Fairness Act before Congress, I'd like to know if anyone has any information on this.

Right. Then, there are the anti-fair Pay Act people who say that isn't happening--but just look at the Fortune 500 CEOs with only 15 or so women. Makes me think.
Thank you for the insight about so many places. I was wondering where ships were decommissioned and why old boats sold for so much. Now I'm getting an idea. It was a male's job when we did it in the U.S., but now I guess American wages are too high.
Thanks. It seems like things are slightly different in the U.S. What is said here is that doctor's wages are going down because women have started to take over the field. We just don't have that many female engineers yet.
I had a job with in a university psychiatry department. The university was turned into a public corporation and downsizers were hired by the new coporate board. Soon our cozy little department was turned into a battle ground with 25% a year turnover.
Agree. The issue of women taking jobs from men is basically over and done. Current job pressure is against US minorities and youth who are competing for entry level jobs with immigrants.
I agree - there is discrimination against older workers like myself, even though it's illegal - hard to prove
I had not thought of it in terms of labor for supply. Thanks.
"Basic economics, raise the supply of a resource, automatically reduce the price."
Maybe a tad *too* basic! You must consider demand. Outsourcing and ever-increasing productivity per worker are trends better matching the rise of unemployment.
