Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
This document describes what the future is likely to hold for working women in the United States. Statistics and projections are presented on the position of women in the workplace by the year 2005. The economy will produce approximately 25 million new jobs between 1990 and 2005. Retailing will replace manufacturing as the second largest source of total employment. Employment will grow fastest for workers in the technical fields. By 2005, government will be third in the service producing sector. Employment growth will be slow for precision production workers, and employment in agriculture should halt its decline. The three fastest growing major occupational groups--executives, administrative and managerial; professional specialties; and technicians and related support--require the highest level of educational attainment. Four tables are included. (LBG)
