Speed or Intensity of Work 4. Also, steadily increasing female labor force participation rates, combined with declining male rates, have brought the labor force closer to gender balance. Not every worker who loses his job can simply move into healthcare work, particularly if the jobs in demand are highly skilled and specialized, such as doctors. India's shocking gender gap in the labour force makes us much poorer as a nation, both economically and socially.

Maybe not! The primary reason why we might be unable to fully reap the benefits of this dividend is often brushed under the carpet, possibly because it is an unpalatable truth. For this reason, demand can exceed supply in certain sectors, even if supply exceeds demand in the labor market as a whole. See Less - Details. From a historical point of view, there is evidence that social norms regarding economic gender roles have long been around, and they are very persistent see, for example, Alesina, Giuliano and Nunn

The wage increase shown in the previous diagram can be decomposed into two separate effects. The supply of doctors is therefore significantly less elastic than that of port cleaners. The first is unemployment. And this is of course independent of health complications — having children is very time consuming even when enjoying perfect health. On the supply side, researchers have long observed a U-shaped relationship between the number of years of education and female labour force participation. For example, trade in services has grown from 18 to 30 percent of the total over the last 20 years, and some higher-skilled, white-collar jobs in the services sector, such as IT and business processing services, are now increasingly outsourced overseas.

Another solution, foreshadowed by the rise of temporary workers in Japan and the firing of many of these workers in response to the financial crisis ofis more flexible job- contracts and -terms that encourage employees to work less than full-time by partially compensating for the loss of hours, relying on workers to adapt their working time in response to job requirements and economic conditions instead of the employer trying to determine how much work is needed to complete a given task and overestimating.

What does this tell us about time allocation and labor supply more generally? This positive relationship is increasing until point F, beyond which the income effect dominates the substitution effect and the individual starts to reduce the amount of labour hours he supplies point G as wage increases; in other words, the wage elasticity is now negative.
