Abstract

El análisis de la evolución de la tendencia del comportamiento de las mujeres en el mercado laboral nos sugiere que aún existen enormes diferencias de género, y que a pesar del avance durante estas últimas décadas de la incorporación de la mujer en el mundo del trabajo, la tasa de paro femenina es aún superior a la de los hombres. En este marco, el artículo explora la disposición laboral del colectivo femenino entre 25 y 55 años respecto a la oferta de trabajos a media jornada. El análisis empírico que da soporte al desarrollo teórico del trabajo se realiza sobre una muestra de mujeres que viven en una ciudad catalana de tamaño medio mediante el ajuste de un modelo de razón de ventajas proporcionales para la explicación de la variable de respuesta ordinal. Los principales resultados obtenidos sugieren que este tipo de oferta de trabajo a tiempo parcial en industrias manufactureras puede ser una buena opción para determinado segmento de mujeres y que además este tipo de oferta de empleo puede ser una buena herramienta que facilite la integración del colectivo procedente de la reciente ola de inmigración. The analysis of the evolution of the women behaviour in the labour market shows that there are still gender differences, and that, even considering the massive incorporation of women in such market, the unemployment rate in women is very much higher than in men. Given these antecedents, we explored in this paper the availability of women, from 25 to 55 year old, on working half time shifts. In the empirical analysis, and in order to explain a multiple-choice response, we estimated a proportional odds model on a random sample of women of a medium-size Catalan city. Our main findings suggest that this type of manufacturing labour supply could be a good choice for some women and it could be a good social integration instrument with respect to the newcomers’ immigrants.
