***** 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 acti*****s ***** contributions.

Female 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 th***** males in ***** service industry and only 34 ***** were promoted to managerial positions.


***** report aims to establish an underst*****ing ***** gender inequality in the hospitality *****dustry in Canada. The objectives of this reports *****clude: identifying the reasons why men ***** managerial positions in Canada; discussing ***** for preferential treatment for men in the hospitality industry; and examining potential motivations for females to pursue managerial positions and any obstacles ********** face.


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

***** hospitality ***** ***** "male-oriented," despite ***** fact that women are more present in the industry. According to recent statistics, clerical and service occupations account for more than 50 ***** of the female labor *****ce.

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

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


Management Today ***** shows that ***** managers are ********** with customers, more efficient, more trustworthy, and more generous and underst*****ing with colleagues ***** their male counterparts. However, Canadian society as a whole believes that men, mainly because of the opportunities and training they receive, make better managers than wo*****. Therefore, evem though females ***** up most of the hospitality industry's workforce, ***** are r*****ly promoted to managerial roles.

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

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