***** TO STUDY

As in much of the world, Canada operates in ways that lead to discrimination based on gender. This often results in women being denied "a fair share" of benefits and opportunities relative to their actions ***** contributions.

***** employees dominate Canada's service and retail trade industries, but the wages and promotional scales do not reflect this fact. In one four-year study, females earned an average of forty percent less than males in ***** service industry and only 34 percent were promoted to managerial positions.


***** report aims to establish an understanding ***** gender inequality in the hospitality industry in Canada. The objectives of this reports include: identifying the reasons why men ***** managerial positions in Canada; discussing ***** for preferential treat*****t for men in the ***** industry; and examining potential motivations for ***** to pursue managerial positions and any obstacles *****y face.


***** almost every industry in Canada, wo***** occupy a very small proportion of the higher-level *****. A 1992 study found that this is especially true in the hospitality industry, where 71 percent of men held management positions, whereas only 34 percent ***** women had reached those positions.

The hospitality ***** is "male-oriented," despite the fact that ***** are more present in the industry. *****ccording to recent statistics, clerical and service occupations account for ***** than 50 percent of the female labor force.

Most studies agree that women and men differ in terms of ***** for go*****g for managerial ***** in ***** industry. Men and ***** have different ways of thinking, different ways ***** working and managing.

It is important to note that even though Canada is a fully developed, first world country, ***** g*****p between what men ***** women earn in Canada continues to be substantial. Recent ***** indicate that women in Canada currently earn less ***** 70 ***** of what men earn.


***** Today study shows that women managers are better with customers, more efficient, more trustworthy, and more generous and understanding with colleagues than ***** male counterparts. However, Canadian society as a whole believes that men, mainly because of the opportunities and training ********** receive, make better managers ***** wo*****. There*****e, evem though females ***** up most of the hospitality industry's *****rkforce, they are rarely promoted to managerial roles.

***** gender inequality is partially due to the lack of concern of the Canadian government, which fails to implement policies that successfully narrow this gap ***** insure that impediments, which interfere with ***** ability of women to ***** incomes and secure managerial positions at a level equal to men, are removed.

Women are also pr*****ted from achieving ***** status in the ***** industry because Canadian society continues to pigeonhole them into certain jobs, which have been historically characterized as "women's work." More than 70% ***** women *****ers in the hospitality ***** ***** never promoted to managerial ***** because it is a common conception that managerial work is a "man's job."
