La Voz – Thursday March 19 – Professor Martha Tepepa, Levy Institute of Economics at Bard College

Today in La Voz with Mariel Fiori, Professor Martha Tepepa, from the Levy Institute of Economics at Bard College, talked about women in the economy and the still unresolved problem of the wage gap between men and women. And what about the immigrant woman? Tepepa said: “In 2018, half of the 258 million people who lived and worked outside their country of birth, that is 129 million migrant workers, were women. Although some migrant women have higher education degrees, postgraduate degrees and specialties, they face many obstacles in foreign markets. If to labor restrictions for migrants we add gender discrimination in the labor markets and the stereotypes associated with migrant women in the communities of labor-destination, we have a double and negative impact. “

Hoy en La Voz con Mariel Fiori, la profesora Martha Tepepa, del Instituto Levy de Economía del Bard College, habló sobre las mujeres en la economía y el problema aún no resuelto de la brecha salarial entre hombres y mujeres. ¿Y qué hay de la mujer inmigrante? Tepepa dijo: “En 2018, la mitad de los 258 millones de personas que vivían y trabajaban fuera de su país de nacimiento, es decir, 129 millones de trabajadores migrantes, eran mujeres. Aunque algunas mujeres migrantes tienen títulos de educación superior, postgrados y especialidades, enfrentan muchas obstáculos en los mercados extranjeros. Si a las restricciones laborales para los migrantes agregamos discriminación de género en los mercados laborales y los estereotipos asociados con las mujeres migrantes en las comunidades de destino laboral, tenemos un impacto doble y negativo “.
