How do U.S. ideology and cultural values about
independence affect employment and work?
Work has been central to definitions
of masculinity. Menâ€™s identities have been tied to work and employment, and a
manâ€™s perceived worth is often directly linked to his job and employment.
Although physical strength used to be related to work, few men now have
physically-demanding jobs. As technological and organizational changes occur, a
cultural shift has impacted the definition of masculinity. Males and females
have come to share similar labor force participation, and the gendering of work
has affected the definitions of femininity and masculinity.
The probabilities or odds of
economic achievement are affected by gender. As an economy changes, the odds
change and also impact gender norms and expectations. With cultural values that
emphasize independence, the U.S. places expectations for economic success on
individuals. If a person is not fully employed, the individual will be held
accountable for unemployment. Economic shifts and gendered discrimination are
rarely considered significant factors in employment and work. However, economic
position is much more complex than individual responsibility. This chapter
highlights factors that impact work.
