Abstract

Employment is a really serious issue in that it can create an economic disruption if it is not dealt with correctly. The wrong solution for employment causes similar results. For this reason, it is important for both the economies of the country and the sector in question to solve the employment problem completely and correctly. In this context, an employment policy should be produced for the aviation sector as well as others. Employment policies should be determined in such a way that both the labour force and qualification need to increase. However, these policies should be in the direction of improving existing policies rather than a radical change. For instance, women’s employment is available in many economies. Therefore, this policy should not be radically changed; on the contrary, it should be in the form of improving existing policies. Within this scope, ignoring women while forming employment policy may have several economic and financial consequences. However, certain factors affect women's employment. These factors can be expressed as follows: the glass ceiling syndrome, the queen bee syndrome, marital status and age, educational status, mobbing and sexual harassment, and wage inequality. In this study, women's employment data are extracted from the USA labour force statistics. The data were subjected to evaluation by the content analysis method. With this method, lots of the data and information independent of one another are examined deeply. By this way general trends can be determined clearly. Therefore, the data in this study are examined within the scope of labour economics. This study concludes that women's employment in the USA aviation market follows a positive course, but this is not enough. To eliminate the insufficiency, a number of economic and financial proposals need to be implemented.
