Abstract

Whereas women have caught up with men in terms of educational attainment in Switzerland, occupational segregation and labor market disadvantages still persist. It has been argued that the gender wage gap may be caused by the sex typing of occupations. Using recent data from the Swiss youth panel survey TREE, this chapter investigats in greater depth the coupling of horizontal and vertical segregation at labor market entry and the role of education in producing gender segregation. Special attention was given to the distinction between upper secondary (mainly vocational) education and higher education.
