This paper analyses employment and earnings mobility by gender in testing the US labor market during the period of 1995-2004. Data from Consumer Population Survey were used. Results have proven that the trend of improving labor market conditions increased total employment of both genders, specifically indicating an increased number of people having full-time jobs during the first five-year period. Second period of recession reduced total employment; the number of full-time jobs went down and part-time jobs went up. Women exhibited greater employment immobility in both periods and their employment immobility increased during the recession. During the second time period, the number of people with improved earnings increased.
