Farrell, no stranger to controversy through his close association with NOW and his books on gender issues, believes that women are socially programmed to accept occupations that are less risky, more flexible, and more fulfilling than those typically chosen by men. He offers 25 ways to increase pay by choosing jobs that pay more because they involve hard science or technology, are uncomfortable, hazardous, less fulfilling or have greater commercial value to employers. He finds that people who get higher pay work more hours, have more experience, take less time off, commute, relocate, travel, take on more work, get more training, and are simply more productive. He also describes some of the current trends for women in the workplace, and shows how some fields discriminate in favor of women. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
