When women work more, it’s good for everyone – the economy

The traditional division of roles within the family may no longer be automatic. But this still leaves unmistakable traces on the labor market: 84% of men between 15 and 65 participate in the labor market, but only 75% of women, estimates the Federal Employment Agency for 2019. And 46% of all employed women. are part-time, for men the proportion is just under ten percent over the period. By way of comparison: in Finland or Lithuania, the gap between the participation of women and men in the labor market is only around two to three percentage points. In Lithuania, less than a tenth of women work part time.
