The challenges as well as roles differ for each woman and they are not a homogenous group. In Newfoundland and Labrador, the women are urban as well as rural differing in age, different ethnicities, lesbians, Aboriginal and with disabilities. These diverse group of women’s dwell in society in various positions which is noticed from the research. Consider an instance where than the non Aboriginal women, an Aboriginal women gets low formal education as well as wage. As a group, economically the women are more susceptible for the unfavorable effects of political, social as well as economic change and some women positions in the society is determined through the factor than a female. Several characteristics of women are needed to be identified as a group.
In Canada according to 2002 statistics, the percentage of women above age 15 engaged in the labour force is 60.7 whereas in Newfoundland and Labrador, the percentage of women above age 15 engaged in the labour force is 53.4.
Therefore in the latest years in labour market, the women participation is increased considerably.
For an example, at their main job, nearly two million employed women, in paid workforce almost 27 percent of all women who worked not more than 30 hours per a week in the year 2000. From late 1970’s, the women accounted of all part time employees for nearly seven in 10.
For women’s admission in to Employment Insurance, opportunities for pensions as well as advancements, this trend offers implications. Consider an instance that the change in Employment Insurance regulations like from the system of weeks based to an hour’s based brought a disproportionate effect on part time workers mainly on women in the year 1996.
The pattern of employment lean to be different, so many women are getting engaged in the labour market. For achieving balance amid responsibilities of family as well as work, the women often go to part time works. This replicates through labour market on their relationship, the impact of women’s unpaid work.
