It appears women have regained all the jobs they lost during the financial crisis, but men are still lagging behind.

After losing more than six million jobs, the Bureau of Labor Statistics believe men have gained only about 70% of them back.  

What's the hold-up? 

First, men lost more jobs than women to begin with, so they have more ground to gain back. Meanwhile, most of the missing jobs come from just two male-dominated industries: construction and manufacturing. But sectors populated with a lot more women like education, leisure, hospitality and health care have all been growing more rapidly.
