Via a WSJ article from the other day ("Where women are working
") I learn of a McKinsey report on women in the workforce
. What I have mentioned a few times recently
, and was news to me is that employed women now outnumber employed men locally. Seems like huge news to me, but maybe I am just slow and everyone knew that already.... but it really is just a recent shift in the context of the long term history where we were perpetually an outlier in the other direction.
Of course... if Marcellus Shale is half as big as some want to believe, we may shift back given the labor force patterns there
