Pfeffer, Jeffrey; Ross, Jerry
Administrative Science Quarterly, v27 n1 p66-80 Mar 1982
Statistical analysis of a 1966 national survey of over 5,000 men, aged 45-59, in managerial, professional, and blue-collar jobs indicates that being married has a positive effect and having a working wife has a negative effect on occupational status and wage attainment, especially for managers and professionals.
