Men in Pink Collar

Written on November 21, 2012 – 2:27 pm | by Brian Wallace |

Today’s men are opting for jobs in non-traditional fields such as nursing, teaching and social work.  These jobs are traditionally predominately female occupied and thus referred to as ‘pink collar’ jobs.  The number of men who have entered these fields has doubled from ten years ago.  In past years, men who held pink collar positions were generally minorities with a low level of education.  Today, however, college educated, white males between the ages of twenty-five and thirty-nine are intentionally seeking out these jobs.  The gradual erosion of stereotypes and the retiring baby boomers are just a couple of reasons for this shift.  Check out the infographic from WorkBoots below for more information.
