Description

What impact does the United States’ transition from a manufacturing economy to a services-based economy have on men and their participation in the labor force? This paper looks at how a change in the category of employment that dominates a state affects the number of men active in the labor force in that state. The research will come from total employment in each state, the total amount of employees in manufacturing for each state, the labor force participation of women in that state, and the level of education for working males versus females in the state. This paper will look at the expenses on capital investments versus labor costs to help determine if this is a cause of offshoring jobs to foreign countries for cheaper labor, or if it is a result of automation, the advancement in technology, taking the jobs of American men.
