The War On Unemployment, Women Are Losing The Battle

As we all continue to wonder just when the economy will bounce back, the grueling war on unemployment drags on and apparently as women we’re losing this battle. I recently watched a a story covered by Diane Sawyer for ABC News where Sharyn Alfonsi reports on how men are getting more jobs than women, and the numbers were overwhelmingly one sided. Take a look at the video below.

Although I do agree that men should be the head of the household and take care of their families, the reality of the world we live in is that every family doesn’t reflect the conventional, “old school”, family unit. What the “He-Covery” theory doesn’t take into account is;

1. There are many single mothers out there who take care of the household who are losing out on jobs.


2. Before the recession, most families were two-income households.

Either way they can’t keep pumping money into industrial jobs and leaving out jobs like teaching, health care, etc… it’s going to be another problem long term socially and eventually ecomically.

What Are YOUR Thoughts On The “He-Covery?”

  • My sis advised me about your web site and how nice it is. She’s proper, I’m actually impressed with the writing and slick design. It appears to me you’re simply scratching the surface when it comes to what you’ll be able to accomplish, however you’re off to a fantastic start!

    • Thank you so much! We hope to only get better with time 🙂

  • I lost my job! I’ve been working for almost 20 years and now it seems like I am too old for anyone to hire me. Actually, it looks like there are not too many places that are hiring ANYBODY these days. Well, I did find this one system for making money online. I’m certainly not making as much as I was at my job but it’s better than nothing. I’ve only been doing it for a few months though, and I am at least making half of what I was making at my job. Plus, I get to write my own work schedule!

    Are you joking? I’m not certain I can put myself behind what you believe. But I will certainly be back to see what else you have tomorrow.
