Perceptions of discrimination based on sex are presented for groups of Mexican-American men and women and Euro-American men and women. A measure of aversion to women who work is introduced and attitudes for the four groups are presented. Based on present significant differences and current demographic trends, discrimination based on sex will continue, and cultural attitudes may in fact perpetuate that.

It has been suggested that one of most dramatic changes in the workplace over the next decade will be the growing number of older employees. The task of managing, challenging, and motivating this aging work force is expected to be more complex due to varied needs and goals. An analysis of data on 3,358 male workers (45-59 yrs of age) from the National Longitudinal Survey of Labor Market--Old Cohort Database on job attitudes indicated that jobs that provided intrinsic motivators or a combination of both intrinsic and extrinsic motivators were better received than those that offered only extrinsic motivators.
