Product Market Imperfections, Job Content Differences and Gender Employment Discrimination at the Management Level: Some Evidence from the Canadian Manufacturing Sector in 1971 and 1981
This paper presents a regression model of the relative employment level of female managers using data for 1971 and 1981 on a forty-one industry sample drawn from the Canadian manufacturing sector. The object of the analysis is to test the neoclassical proposition that employment discrimination, here, against females, is fostered by imperfect product market conditions. In addition, the model allows for the open nature of the Canadian economy and for interindustry differences in the job and skill content of managerial occupations. The results support the neoclassical view and as well emphasize the importance of post-secondary education to the employment of females at the management level.
