Measuring the Pay Disparity between Typically Female Occupations and Other Jobs: A Bivariate Selectivity Approach.
Sorensen, Elaine
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v42 n4 p624-39 Jul 1989
A study found that women in female-dominated jobs earned 6-15 percent less than women with the same characteristics in other occupations. These results support the hypothesis that women are crowded into "female" jobs because of employer discrimination, resulting in lower wages for these jobs. (JOW)
