According to the latest jobs report, the U.S. labor market in improving, but men and women aren't recovering at an equal pace.
The nation finally recovered all 8.7 million jobs lost during the financial crisis.
New numbers from the Labor Department show that men have nearly 700,000 fewer jobs not than when the recession began in 2007.
Women have recovered far better, and recovered all of their lost jobs last year.
