The fall in formal sector employment has had important -- usually negative -- consequences for the people concerned. it has frequently led to a decline in individual and family income, social exclusion, and a worsening of the life chances of their children. . the decline in employment has disproportionately affected women. in general, the decline in female employment has been larger -- in some cases very much larger -- than the decline in male employment. for example, in the czech republic, between 1985 and 1997, the decline in female employment (11.8 per cent) was almost 10 times the decline in male employment (1.2 per cent). which of these statements is supported by information in the text? the employment rate of a nation also has social consequences. the employment rate of a nation only affects its female population. the employment rate of a nation only affects its male population. the czech republic was more negatively affected than any other country.
The correct answer is A) The employment rate of a nation also has social consequences.
The statement that is supported by the information of the test is “The employment rate of a nation also has social consequences.”
The text is referring to the fall in formal sector employment and the social consequences it has for citizens. The example the text is using is the case of Czech Republic between 1985-1997. The text makes reference that the decline in employment has disproportionally affected women, but they are not the only case because it refers too the men decline employment. The employment rate of a nation has social consequences such as the decline of individual and family income, social exclusion, and a worsening of the life chances of their children.
Short answer is A...
A. The employment rate of a nation also has social consequences.
This passage explains that the fall in formal sector employment has had a negative effect on both, women and men. However, the decline in employment has affected women much more than men. It also explains that this situation has led to a decline in individual and family income, which results in social exclusion and worse living conditions. Thus, the main idea is that the employment rate of a nation has social consequences.
According to the excerpt, women were affected by the shift in employment because: Option A. Women were more likely than men to lose their jobs.
The conditions for employment are changing around the world and there has been a drop in the among of formal sector employment in many countries and more people are having to turn to part-time work and contract work in order to make ends meet. Female employment in the formal sector has declined in countries like the Czech Republic. Bičáková (2010) has found in her research that this is because women in the Czech Republic are less educated than men on average, and they are more likely to stay home with young children. Reentering the job market after a long absence to care for children is difficult and contributes to the high levels of unemployment among women there.
