The Questionable Impact of Gender on Job Loss Reactions: Implications for Employment Counseling
Wooten, Kevin C.; Valenti, Alix M.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v45 n4 p146 Dec 2008
A heterogeneous sample of 301 men and 118 women who experienced job loss was surveyed on 4 affective and 14 attributional variables. Analysis revealed that approximately 90% of the reported gender differences involving job loss reactions disappeared when age, ethnic background, marital status, education, tenure, salary, job classification, and financial strain were controlled. Resulting gender differences do not support traditional stereotypes of unemployed women nor do they support previous findings of gender-related job loss reactions. (Contains 1 table.)
