Abstract

Presentation on national and local economic conditions, given at the New Mexico Women's Agenda Lobbying Workshop on January 21, 2011. Illustrates the effects of the recession on employment and economic growth, including a forecast of the state's economy for 2011. Reynis then discusses how the recession has affected men more severely in employment; the problems with social "safety net" programs for families; the gains women have made in the labor force; and the persistent "earnings gap" between males and females. Includes charts, tables, and maps.
