U.S. Adults Prefer a Male Boss, 4-in-10 Have No Preference

Mad Men

PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 17 (UPI) — Given a choice, U.S. adults taking a new job say they would prefer a male boss — although 4-in-10 have no preference, a Gallup Poll found.

These attitudes have not changed much in recent years, but when Gallup first asked this question in 1953, 66 percent of Americans preferred a male boss, while 5 percent preferred working for a woman.

Gallup’s annual Work and Education survey, conducted Aug. 7-11, asked all Americans polled regardless of their employment status or work history.

The 23 percent of U.S. adults who said they would opt to work for a woman was the highest in the history of Gallup’s asking this question since 1953, although it is essentially the same as in several previous surveys. Thirty-five percent said they prefer a male boss.
