Dozier, Raine – Social Forces, 2010
During the 1980s and 1990s, industrial restructuring led to a marked increase in wage inequality.

Jackson, Patricia – CURRENTS, 2011
The author did not expect to be surprised or disturbed by the data from the latest Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) salary survey; however, she was.

Robertson, Heather-Jane – Education Canada, 2000
Demographic projections concerning the shortage of teachers in Canada, their pay scale, the feminization of teaching, the gender gap in salaries, and teacher autonomy have often been incorrect, or correct for the wrong reasons. Instead of relying on demographic predictions, teachers should contemplate who they really want to be professionally,…

Our results show that male nurses do earn a wage premium, largely explained by…
