dc.description.abstract This study was designed to examine the rates of employment among displaced workers. The model used for this study looked at individual, structural, and gender segment variables that affect employment. The data came from the 2000 Displaced Worker Survey, a supplement of the Current Population Survey. This study found that displaced workers with a college degree were more likely to be employed net of other factors at the individual level. At the structural level, it was found that net of other factors those displaced from a whitecollar high-skill position were almost 60% more likely to be employed than those displaced from blue-collar low-skill position. Women, net of other factors, were found to be less likely compared men to find employment post-displacement. Overall, this study shows a need for increased education and job training among workers. Also, the difference in the rate of employment between men and women show possible discrimination in hiring practices. en
