"Male-dominated sectors such as manufacturing have decreased as a share of the economy" deserves more attention. There's off-shoring, there's automation - large numbers of men replaced by fewer people working in robotics - and there's the decline of labor unions, depressing wage growth for the men who remain. If not for local regulations, many highly paid construction workers building residences would have been replaced by lower wage factory workers.
