Transcript HCWPC Harris County Women's Political Caucus 3602milam houston 77002 (713)524-5743 NEWSLETTER, SEPTEMBER WOMEN IN CITY EMPLOYMENTt A TALE OF TWO CITIES The story of women employed by the city of Houston is a tale of two cities. One city is mostly malej mostly whitej frequently administers or directs, and if it does not administer or direct, it fills the ranks of protective service workers, skilled craftspeople, and technicians; in every Job category except service and maintenance (only 17.26$ of which is white and male), its salary level is above the median salary level for "that job category. Neither women nor minority men employed by the city earn salaries so consistently above the median. The other city Is much smaller In population; mostly female, white and non-white; is found overwhelmingly In office and clerical positions (the most underpaid Job category In the city); and even when It Is not working as clerks, makes a fraction of the salary males make for the same jobs. According to the 1970 census, women comprise 37.63$ of the labor force In Houston (that's labor forcp, not population, which Is 51.64$ women), and 35.92$ of the labor force in Harris County. It should surprise no one who Is at all familiar with the status of women in city government that women comprise only 18.42$ of all city employees. Perhaps no more surprising, though more outrageous, are the statistics which show that although only 18.42% of city employees are women, in December 1973 women made up about 47$ of city employees who were in positions for which the lowest salary was $7000 or less a year. As of June, 1973. 64.17$ of the city employees making between $4000 and $5900 annually were women; 20.04$ of city employees making between $6000 and $7900 were women; 11.05$ of city employees making between 18000 and $9900 were women; 4.80$ of city employees making between $10,000 and 43 2,000 were women; and 2.92$ of city employees maklnp Cont. on next pg.
