Abstract:
New technologies have brought about a fundamental change in the labour market by providing and enabling the environment to absorb women in the labour force. However, gender differences persist in the labour market. Women face more problems at the workplace as compared to men. This study verified the gender differences at workplace drawing from a survey data of a random sample of 452 young people in a residential colony in Delhi. The findings indicate that work-life balance, income, social interaction at the workplace, job change and reasons for leaving the previous job varies significantly with gender. Overall the job satisfaction varies significantly according to gender. Traditional social practices which are nurtured at home are reproduced at the workplace and push working women in a disadvantageous position in the labour market in Delhi.
