Men hit harder by recession than women

Male unemployment has gone up much more than female unemployment

I actually disagree with the notion that companies may be less likely to lay off lower-paid workers. Typically, lower-paid workers are less skilled, and are thus less costly to retrain when they're needed again. Thus, a college cuts its janitorial staff but not its assistant professors.
