What Do Women Say About the Job Market And Economy?

How do working women feel about jobs and the economy? According to Randstad's recent nationwide survey, women over the past year have become increasingly confident when it comes to the overall economy, the number of available jobs and their ability to find employment. 

After surviving a tough economic downtown, women are finally gaining ground in the job market after trailing behind men in 2010. 

From February 2010 until December 2012, men gained 3.5 million jobs, compared to 1.8 million for women according to USA Today. The gap started closing recently, in part because women dominate industries that have led the recovery, including healthcare, temporary workers, restaurants and retail.
