Trabajo Femenino: Las Nuevas Desigualdades (Feminine Work: New Inequalities)
Marina Chávez Hoyos, México: UNAM. Economics Research Institute 2010.
Mexico's women's labor market is characterized by low salaries, part-time jobs, and generalized discrimination, along with informal labor markets and sub-contracting. In spite of this difficult situation, Mexican women have increased their presence in the labor market. Mexican women are in the labor market to stay. They are no longer—if they ever were—an industrial reserve army that enters or exits according to the economy’s needs.
