Welfare Careers and Low Wage Employment.
Miller, Joe A.; Ferman, Louis A.
A sample of 1010 low-wage workers in Detroit (stratified by sex and welfare status) were interviewed in 1969. Data were collected on background characteristics, labor market experiences, and work career histories. The data relate to sexism as an important determinant of income in low-wage groups (women earn less and have lower status jobs), training and education effects on wage determinations and work careers characterized by instability and lack of access to institutional memberships such as unions.
