Men occupy the 20 most dangerous occupations in the United States
Men die at work more often than women, which is not very important for some people. Recent statistics that run through the news seem to provide a salient point about gender differences. Both in the so-called “wage gap” and even human rights.
In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it has been noted that during 2015, men dominated the 20 most dangerous occupations in the United States. Examples of this are logging, which is the most dangerous work in the United States, followed by fishing. Mining is the twentieth most dangerous profession. An important fact that can not be ignored is that more men than women occupied these jobs between 85.4 and 99.9 percent.
It has caused some discomfort that “security at work” was not seen anywhere in the memes or tweets of #HumanRightsDay. However, there was room for calls for medical attention, contraception, and awareness of global warming as human rights.
Jordan Peterson, who is a Canadian clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto wrote about the topic recently on his blog. In fact, he said the studies and his anecdotal research show that all this work to make men and women more equal has actually had the opposite effect. “Societies become more equal in their gender in their social and political policies, men and women become more different in certain aspects, instead of being more similar”.
It should be noted that when talking about work and safety at work, men really fulfill roles that are not only dangerous. Being that they are also essential for a safe and functional society.
Added to this, there are other sex differences, but they are not that big, except for the interest mentioned above. Men are comparatively more interested in things and women in people. This is the biggest psychological difference between men and women identified so far. And these differences drive the occupational choice, particularly at the extremes.
What is a fact is that the innate wiring in men and women, along with the society’s view of the differences between men and women, despite the efforts of feminism, combine to encourage or support the fact that men They occupy the 20 most dangerous jobs at a rate of almost 100%.
