Abstract

This paper explores industrial variations in gender segregation among blue-collar, manufacturing positions. National census data on employment by occupations and industry, along with other industrial-level statistics, are used to identify the relationships between an industry's economic resources and labor market characteristics, and its level of blue-collar segregation. The analysis reveals that the highest levels of blue-collar segregation are found in manufacturing industries that possess relatively few economic resources and that provide lower rewards to workers than other industries.
