Does High Unemployment Mean the Death of Macho?

Thursday, July 02, 2009

This morning the unemployment numbers come out and there is a strong chance that they could reach the double digits. The economy is hitting men particularly hard. From the corporate suites to the construction sites, since November, more than 80 percent of job losses in the U.S. have fallen on men. For a look at what this means for both men and women in the workforce, we are joined by Kelly Evans, she is the economics reporter for the Wall Street Journal. We are also joined by Riehan Salam, a fellow at The New America Foundation; he’s written a new piece on this for Foreign Policy magazine titled The Death of Macho. And for an up close look on how the recession is affecting men we turn to Michael Doyle. Doyle is the Vice President and General Manager of the Southeast Division of Manpower, which is an employment service provider.

Guests:

Michael Doyle, Kelly Evans and Reihan S Salam

Men have higher salaries than women. Colleges have been graduating more women than men for some years now.
The death of macho is bonehead conclusion to deduct from the unemployment statistics.
