Abstract: The primary purpose of this study was to compare women's perceived income with actual monetary gain. The study was designed to determine the costs of employment and net income received, and to compare perceived income with actual net gain. An interview schedule was developed to obtain the desired information. It was administered by a research team to a random sampling of women employees in the textile and home furnishings industries, located in four Piedmont North Carolina counties. It was assumed that women employees are reluctant to answer questions of a confidential nature. Major findings were summarized in relation to the background information obtained and results from data provided by the interview schedule.
