Equality in Job Loss

Jul 22 2008

The Joint Economic Committee released this report, requested by Vice Chair Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), finding that the current downturn threatens women’s employment more than ever before. The 2001 recession was the first in decades during which women not only lost jobs, but also did not see their employment rates recover to their pre-recession peak. Unlike in decades past, families can no longer rely on women’s employment to help boost family income during a downturn.  U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer is the Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee.
