Women in the workplace numbers stagnate

Posted: Updated:

A new study out of Cornell says nearly 75% of women are in the U.S. workforce, but...that number hasn't changed since 1990.

When put into context, many other developing countries have a much higher percentage of women in the workforce.

The study's researchers say a big reason women in America don't work is because our country does not have family friendly labor laws.

The U.S. is the only industrialized country in the world that doesn't mandate some kind of paid-parental leave.
