Register to read the introduction… The degree of occupational and industrial segregation between men and women is still very high. Men have always been relatively concentrated in industrial employment in blue collar and white collar jobs, that is to say, management and professional services, while women were relatively concentrated in lower levels of job clerical and administrative and sales jobs and services to low-wage, often part time. This division has become blurred over time, with increasing numbers of women working professionals and managers. However, women who have paying jobs are still mainly in a relatively small number of professional groups, particularly in the areas of the wider public sector such as health, education and social …show more content…
In humans, it seems that it is the happiest and the chance to refuse; at least, it would be foolish. The goals of all are very similar, good job and comfortable life, histories of repeated deception over and over again. These stories are alike, but the methods invented by a variety of recruitment (Lloyd, 2008). Traffickers often employ local people in a community or village to identify young girls and children and targeting poor and vulnerable families. Sometimes family members sell their children to middlemen or traffickers, falsely believing that their children will have gainful employment or education and that will, out of respect for them, they will do what is asked of them.

An increasing proportion of part-time workers have professional occupations, reflecting the overall growth of this category. Among women aged 25 and over, for example who hold roughly half of all part-time jobs the majority working in a professional field has increased by about one quarter to one third since the mid-80s (Montana, 2008).

More than a quarter of all part-time workers indicated that their employment was not permanent, compared to only one tenth of full-time workers.
About half of these part-time workers described their non-permanent employment as "casual". Although some of these workers were young people still in school, many were older workers and they thought maybe their jobs as a casual because they hoped to find a better paying job full time. Another third of part-time workers described their jobs as non-permanent because they were under contract or for a fixed term. The employment contract often has negative consequences for workers, including the exclusion of benefits and uncertainty about the future of their
