The "Man-cession"

This recession has caused some of the biggest transformations seen in the American workforce in decades. According to this article in the Wall Street Journal, these changes have included women taking the lead in today's workforce:
Steady increases among women with college degrees over the past two decades apparently paid off during the recession, with government statistics showing they fared better than men over the past year, and for the first time surpassed the number of men holding payroll jobs.

The article attributes this change as being driven by the economic downturn putting the squeeze on lesser-skilled positions, giving women, who have more college degrees than men, an advantage in today's job market.

This might be a good reason for guys to go back to school.
