Male Boss or Female Boss -- Who Do Americans Prefer?

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-11_427d18d1cc.jpgiStock/Thinkstock (NEW YORK) -- A plurality of Americans don’t care if a man or woman is their boss at work. Forty-one percent of respondents to a Gallup survey admitted as much.  That's more than at any other time since the question was first asked in 1953.

Gallup also says that in 1953, 66 percent of respondents said they’d rather have a male boss while only five percent picked a woman. Today, that margin has narrowed to 35 percent selecting a male boss and 23 percent opting for a female supervisor.  However, the difference isn’t much greater from a decade ago when it was 31 percent to 19 percent male-to-female preference.

Another sign of gender imbalance: women in full-time jobs earn 77 cents for each dollar earned by men -- virtually no change from the past 10 years.  That could likely be because men still have the majority of managerial jobs, especially the further one goes up the corporate ladder.
