Women’s Access to Quality Jobs in Mississippi – Research
August 21, 2019 - - Posted by
This report examines job quality in Mississippi—specifically whether the jobs in Mississippi allow workers in the state to adequately provide for their families—and the extent to which women, including women of color, have access to better-quality jobs. This research was conducted by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) and commissioned by the Women’s Foundation of Mississippi (WFM). The research in this report supports the idea of improving the quality of all jobs in Mississippi and investingin workers, especially those women workers who are over-represented in low-paying jobs with few benefits.
